 Since today (2004-03-30), we experience a calculation error when using strtotime("-1 month") to get previous month date. Maybe this error is due to the fact that 2004 is a bissextile year. The last bissextile year was 1996.

Reproduce code:
 The actual computer date must be 2004-03-30.

  print strftime("%Y-%m-%d", strtotime("-1 month"))."\n";

Expected result:

Actual result:

march 30 - 1 month = feb 30; that doesn\'t exist and is the same as march 1.
