You are right ;-)
xlog didn't touch the date...

The attached patch fixes the date field when doing cabrillo import.

One more question:
Do the other fields look okay? I noticed cabrillo import uses different
field widths depending on the type of contest (see 'CONTEST:' field in
the cabrillo file).
'CONTEST: NA' and 'CONTEST: ARRL-SS' are recognized by xlog, what does
your log say?

I noticed fields get garbled when doing a cabrillo import from tlf when
'CONTEST:' is other then 'NA' or 'ARRL-SS', but I don't know if tlf
follows the right cabrillo format....
