Description

According to the documentation, Time.strptime "parses +date+ using Date._strptime and converts it to a Time object." However this conversion is extremely naive, using only certain fields return by Date._strptime and ignoring the rest (for example :wnum0).

This creates confusing and inconsistent behavior when compared to Date and DateTime's strptime methods.

For example:

puts Date.strptime('201418', "%Y%U")
=> 2014-05-04
puts DateTime.strptime('201418', "%Y%U")
=> 2014-05-04T00:00:00+00:00
puts Time.strptime('201418', "%Y%U")
=> 2014-01-01 00:00:00 -0500
