Yes, thanks, as you suspected those lines date back to when we had the
wrong early-1990s transition times for Russia, and for Belarus as well.
(I think they were from Shanks but do not have my copy of Shanks handy.)
Evidently we fixed the former but not the latter. I installed the
attached patch to fix this.
This is all somewhat independent of the problem that started this
thread, which was merely that the "0:00s" was confusing. Any time
between 0:00 and 2:00 could have been put there, without changing the
meaning of the table. Even the date could have been changed to July 1
without changing anything. It was a (confusing) no-change transition.
