More checks for localtime() and gmtime() returning NULL.
And some comments in the case where we're converting the result of time() - if your machine's idea of time predates January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 UTC, it'll crash on Windows, but that's not a case where a *file* can cause the problem due either to a bad file time stamp or bad time stamps in the file.
