The problem is that now WP will send the date as ‘YYYYMMDDTHH:MM:SSZ’.
Previously it would not send the trailing ‘Z’ and ruby 1.8.2 (shipped
with Tiger) does *not* expect that ‘Z’ (and thus raises a “wrong
The XML-RPC specification defines the format using one example which
is w/o a ‘Z’ (and there is an additional note about time zone info
which hints that they did not expect this type to ever carry TZ info
) so WP is probably wrong in sending it.
That said, newer versions of Ruby’s XML-RPC parser do support several
variations, so upgrading your Ruby  will fix the problem -- but I
have cc’ed Joseph, he can say if we should expect a patch for WP.
 Which is unbelievable stupid, but that whole spec is unbelievable
