Well, there is no strange that Amiga sets some system date after power
up even without battery real-time clock. In fact the power up starting
procedure set system date by three ways. Firstly, system try to copy
one from real-time chip if it is available. Otherwise system looks
over the files on booting disk for search maximal value of "Last
Changed" date and uses one. If it is not possible for any reason (disk
is absent or non dos, etc) then date will be set to default value
(1-Jan-78). Note: system clock and date value are set only in time
after power up. Ones don't changed by reset/reboot but may be
corrected by "Time" prefs program or by command DATE or SETCLOCK.
