incorrect time label by roms plotting package?

the time label showed by ccnt is incorrect. Changing the year and yearday of the first line in the ccnt input file does not change the time label. Did I miss something?

it seems that the plotting program looks for an attribute called 'calender' in the variable dstart or ocean_time. If the value is 'gregorian', it will just ignore the specified year and day in the input file and take dstart as a modified julian date with base time being 1958/5/23. Otherwise it will use the specified year and day in the input file as a base time.
