Strange bug in arithmetic function

In a bash script I use: $[`date --date='this week' +'%V'`%2] to see if
the week number is even.
Only in week 08 the error is: bash: 08: value too great for base
(error token is "08") the same in week 09, all others are Ok...

GNU bash, version 3.2.39(1)-release (i486-pc-linux-gnu)
