Strftime : possible bug

Hi
I’m using ruby 1.9.2 p290

It looks like strftime is inserting an extra space when using the
following format “%a %e-%b-%Y” and the dayofmonth < 10
for a Date of 1-Jun-2011
eg date.strftime("%a %e-%b-%Y") => “Fri 1-Jun-2011” (2 spaces between
Fri and 1)

For a Date of 12-Jun-2011
the same code gives (correctly) “Fri 12-Jun-2011”

Regards

| %e Like %d, the day of the month as a decimal number, but a leading zero
| is replaced by a space. (SU)
