--- Comment #1 from Jilles Tjoelker <jilles at FreeBSD.org> ---
The behaviour is indeed strange, but I don't think resetting the day of the
month to 1 whenever -j and -f are used together is correct. Commands like date
-j -f %H:%M:%S 00:00:00 should still print midnight of the current day, not of
the first of the month. Likewise, the date(1) man page (by referring to
strftime(3)) seems to suggest that nonexistent days like 30 February are
converted to something in March.

You can specify the day of the month (%d) as 1 in your script.
