Not being really expert on dates, one thing that catch my attention in 2.5:

"•	In the 1900 date base system, the lower limit is January 1, 0001
00:00:00, which has a serial value of ***-4346018***. The upper-limit is
December 31, 9999, 23:59:59, which has a serial value of
2,958,465.9999884. The base date for this date base system is December
30, 1899, which has a serial value of 0."

It seems that serial value wasn't changed -- it is not change tracked.
