SCCS is messing up my date format strings

Does anybody know how to keep SCCS from changing the wrong module keywords? I'm thinking of a don't translate after this line kind of operation.

I see where you can use get with a -k but then no keywords get translated. It's either all or none.

I use simply

# %A%
# %G% %T%

in all my headers, very rarely any thing that resembles a SCCS keyword in any of my code, until now.

I'm using some code that manipulates dates and SCCS is changing my date format strings.

This: print UnixDate($d1, "%Y%m%d%H%M%S\n");
Becomes this: print UnixDate($d1, "m%d08/03/09M%S\n");

Any ideas?
