;-)

If you set the centuryCutoff to 02 (or any number less than 27), you will
get the correct result of 1927. I think this is a bug (if you have 4-digit
years turned on then the system date should respect them and not ignore the
century), but this will work around it and avoid making people 100 years
too young.
