Yes, I changed the code to fall-back to using DateTime.jd if
DateTime.new! is not available.

I think this is being caused by a bug in Ruby's date library,
introduced in revision 31862, that prevents more than one argument
from being passed to DateTime.jd. I've raised this issue in RedMine as
bug #4848.
