Retest of fully letting it power down including supercap
Same date while accelerated, that is a date in 2030 I think remained  
March 30
Non accelerated after full discharge gave year of 2019.

With normal reset due to pressing button, removing and reinserting  
battery or system reset brought up the date and time that was  
correctly set.  more or less now
