looks like the engine is seeing seconds also as a possible valid date.

convert 0 to long date and long time;put it -> Thursday, January 1, 1970 1:00:00 AM
1:00:00 = DST here in germany!

convert 10 to long date and long time;put it -> Thursday, January 1, 1970 1:00:10 AM
etc...

And of course:
put (the seconds) is a date -> TRUE
