I experiment a strange behavior

I use a French system Mac OS X 10.1.5

in continental date system, "05/06/1927" =
june the fifth of 1927

When I type the following code :

set useSystemDate to true
put "05/06/1927" into startDate
convert startDate to dateitems
set useSystemDate to false
answer startDate

the answer is "2027,06,05,0,0,7"
I watch "1927,06,05,0,0,7"

so the person with this birthdate is 100 years younger (not yet born !!)
Fine !!!!

How can I get the good answer !!!!!

Any idea ???

Thanks for your help
