riak / riaksearch fails and returns with "badarg, universaltime_to_localtime" on any mapreduce function

 this is erlang issue.

According to documentation (
"This function converts from local time to Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).
Date1 must refer to a local date after Jan 1, 1970." 5>

And here my shell:

** exception error: bad argument
     in function  erlang:localtime_to_universaltime/2
        called as
     in call from calendar:local_time_to_universal_time_dst/1

6> calendar:local_time_to_universal_time_dst({{1970,1,1},{23,59,59}}).

Track down date generator and handle the case.
