Trouble with column coloring

For some reason a column coloring rule doesn't work when using the pubdate field in test conditions. I'm trying to color a column when the pubdate is before a certain date but it refuses to work. I can use any other field with no problem but it never works for the pubdate field. Does anybody know why this is happing, or at the very least, does anybody know a way around the problem?

I could not get it to work: 8.21 on XP SP3.
I wonder if it is because pubdate is a timestamp field?

Bug, pure and simple. No date fields work because the coloring template is generated incorrectly.

I have submitted a fix to Kovid.
