Adds a test and a fix for this bug. The guess in RT that the bug is triggered in years that are 50 years in the past is good. str2time makes calls to timegm/timelocal which have some guessing logic for the century when given 2 digit years. To fix the bug, we keep track of whether or not we were given a 4 digit year and if so, pass a 4 digit year to timegm/timelocal so it doesn't guess.

[strptime] Parse out century if specified
If we've been given a year that's got the century attached (i.e., the
year is > 1900), store the century.  Then use this information to defeat
the guessing behavior of timegm.
