I thought this was not working because I tried 6m for months.  Is there
any reason why month and year are not allowed?

Does anyone can reproduce this in HEAD or 0.12.1?  It looks like
something got unsynchronized and it could never go back again.

Do you want me to enter this in bugzilla anyway?

Thanks a lot for the program!!!  Since I don't know how to program, at
least in C, this way I can help in something.

By the way, is there anyone working on the documentation?  That would be
something I can help with given that someone check whatever I do because
english is not my primary language ;)

Thanks again,
