I forgot to say, yes all the pictures with a "Flinfo date" problem are taken before 1900 as i remember.
I give many examples below with pictures taken in 1885, 1892, 1895, etc.
Most of time, comes the date "January 19, 2038 at 00:13", even if the pictures on Flickr are tagged with different years before 1900.
Many pictures, examples :

For image ID 2555854762, Flinfo gives January 19, 2038 at 00:13

Another thing, i tried to upload pictures from the Smithonian Institution, but it appeared another problem,
i.e. many pictures have the mention "unknown author". Even if those pictures are old and are released under
the license "no copyright restrictions known", i'm still not sure we can upload them. Can someone give me some
indications about that?

is it always the same date? Do you have some examples for me?
