A rare/corner case, but thought I'd document it.

pandas.read_msgpack() throws a ValueError: Dates do not conform to passed frequency if the index is a DatetimeIndex and there are only two rows of data.

In [66]: df = pd.DataFrame([1, 2], index=pd.date_range('1/1/2013', '1/2/2013'))

In [67]: df
Out[67]: 
            0
2013-01-01  1
2013-01-02  2

[2 rows x 1 columns]

In [68]: pd.read_msgpack(df.to_msgpack())

ValueError: Dates do not conform to passed frequency

Adding a third row makes the problem go away:

In [13]: df = pd.DataFrame([1, 2, 3], index=pd.date_range('1/1/2013', '1/3/2013'))

In [14]: df
Out[14]:

2013-01-01  1
2013-01-02  2
2013-01-03  3

[3 rows x 1 columns]

In [15]: pd.read_msgpack(df.to_msgpack())
Out[15]: 
            0
2013-01-01  1
2013-01-02  2
