[rt-users] Date-related warnings in RT log

I don't know whether this is a problem with my installation or if it's a 
well-known glitch, but I get a bunch of these warnings in my RT log.  They 
generally come when I do a bulk delete of tickets from a queue (once per 
ticket), but they show up at other times as well.

Here is the warning message:
[warning]: Use of uninitialized value in string ne at 
/opt/local/lib/RT/Interface/Web.pm line 1481. 

And this is the code that is referenced in the warning:
         #If it's something other than just whitespace
         if ( $ARGSRef->{ $field . '_Date' } ne '' ) {

I also see these debug messages whenever I display the "Home" page in RT:
[Thu Apr 19 18:05:31 2007] [debug]: RT::Date used date::parse to make 
1970-01-01 28800 (/opt/local/lib/RT/Date.pm:211)

The debug messages might be related to the warnings, but I'm not good 
enough at decoding someone else's perl to be able to tell.  I'm not even 
that good at decoding my own perl code sometimes!
