OK, I see now -- you wrap localtime too.  Sorry about the confusion.

However, gmtime and localtime share the same buffer (at least on
systems that conform to the C Standard), and a user program that
invokes strftime on the output of gmtime will run into the same
problem.  So for completeness I guess you need to wrap gmtime as well.
