(decode-time (days-to-time (time-to-days (current-time))))
 => (0 0 1 10 6 3980 2 t 3600)

With "GNU Emacs (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.20.1) of
2011-02-10 on keller, modified by Debian".

(time-to-days) returns the number of days since 0001-12-31bce, which
(days-to-time) converts into a time value. That time value is relative
to 0001-12-31bce, _not_ relative to 1970-01-01, which is what
(decode-time) is expecting.

Hence you end up 1970 years out.
