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

It looks like Riak is hitting this error when trying to jsonify the
metadata, specifically the "X-Riak-Last-Modified" header. The timestamp in
the header works out to be "Sun, 21 Nov 2010 07:28:05 GMT". Your system
seems to be translating it to a date before 1970.

Can you run the following Erlang code while attached to a running Riak node?

It should output something like:
