Symptoms

The Control Plan Editor's Profile Date Compare (PDC) node may branch incorrectly for Profile Tag dates that have a value earlier than the UNIX epoch 0 start date (January 1st, 1970).

The following slee_acs process debug output shows date conversion error for a Profile Tag date set to January 1st 1902:

The Converted field from the debug is in Tue Jan 19 03:14:07 2038 resulting in the PDC node logic incorrectly branching out of its Future exit.
