Lotus Development has revealed that there is a Y2K related bug in its Domino software that can lead to client software crashes.
The problem occurs when a document sent in Notes/ Domino messages contains a year date beyond 2000 or before 1950. The company has developed a patch for the problem, which is available for download on its Web site. It will be corrected in a future software release.
Lotus is recommending that users of Notes Domino versions R5, 4.6.6 and 4.5.7 check the text field in their documents to make sure that it returns the correct value.
