Some. The failures are varied depending upon the format string.

SDL:

//---
   #debug concat("%z ---> <",datetime(now,"%z"),">\n")
   #debug concat("%Z ---> <",datetime(now,"%Z"),">\n")
   // For the lines above
   // 3.7.0.8  - Invalid formatting code in format string, or
   //            resulting string too long.
   // v3.8 b 1 - Invalid formatting code in format string, or
   //            resulting string too long.
   // ~master  - Invalid formatting code in format string, or
   //            resulting string too long.
   // povr     - %z ---> <-0400>
   //            %Z ---> <EDT>

   #debug concat("%z ---> <",datetime(now,"%c %z"),">\n")
   #debug concat("%Z ---> <",datetime(now,"%c %Z"),">\n")
   // For the lines above

As I believe I mentioned somewhere else, I'm not sure what all doesn't 
work with respect to formatting given the boost code being used doesn't 
  set up all the fields needed to use the complete set of strftime() 
formatting.
