 Seems that the behavior changed in r205821:
 r205821 | edwin | 2010-03-29 09:49:20 +0300 (Mon, 29 Mar 2010) | 12 lines
 Long awaited update to the calendar system:
 - Repeating events which span multiple years (because of -A, -B or
   just the three days before the end of the year).
 - Support for lunar events (full moon, new moon) and solar events
   (equinox and solstice, chinese new year). Because of this, the
   options -U (UTC offset) and -l (longitude) are available to
   compensate if reality doesn't match the calculated values.
 MFC after:      1 month
 edwin: Could you comment on this?
