Thanks a lot for pointing to this variable, its docstring is quite
interesting.

I’m trying the workaround suggested (using a diary sexp, i.e.,
"<%%(diary-date 2039 4 2)>" in my case), but I cannot test it (the
agenda for that date won’t build, at the date is outside the range). I
guess this will be fixed by then ;)

Best,

Alan
