There is no bug, and RISC OS centiseconds since 1900 datestamps are good to go up to the year 2248, 141 years after UNIX seconds since 1970 datestamp run out in 2106.

As its a multi word 40bit number I don't see any problems when it goes negative in 2174, unlike systems using 32bit UNIX datestamps in 2038 which are likely to have issues due to signed arthimetic.
