Feature #4148: Time#strftime with %T broken on Windows
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/4148#change-43028

Author: metakeule (Marc Rene Arns)

Priority: Normal

Category: core
Target version: Ruby 1.8.8


=begin
 On unix:
 
 Time.now.strftime('%T') #=> "15:33:03"
 Time.now.strftime('%Y') #=> "2010"
 Time.now.strftime('%Y %T') #=> "2010 15:33:03"
 Time.now.strftime('%H:%M:%S') #=> "15:33:03"
 
 On Windows 7 (64bit) (ruby 1.8.7, patchlevel 249 i386-mingw32):
 Time.now.strftime('%T') #=> ""
 Time.now.strftime('%Y') #=> "2010"
 Time.now.strftime('%Y %T') #=> ""
 Time.now.strftime('%H:%M:%S') #=> "15:33:03"
 
 So if %T is included in the string, everything breaks and "" is returned.
 I guess that problem might also exist on other windows plattforms.
 Since '%H:%M:%S' works it could be used instead, but some libraries, e.g. Rack::Session::Cookie use '%T' which leads to subtile bugs (e.g. Expire-Date for Cookies not set).
 
 I haven't tested with ruby 1.9 maybe, this bug also exists there.
