Wrong timestamps in notification istory

I was doing some testing and creating deliberate errors, and discovered that icingweb2 is displaying incorrect timestamps in the “notification history” tab. Here is a screenshot of an example. Note that the timestamps are all at roughly 4:30 PM in December of 1969. Since I’m in the US/Pacific time zone, that translates to a Unix timestamp that is (nearly) zero.

I dug into the icinga databases and found that the notifications are being stored correctly there; here are the last 25:

MariaDB [icinga]> select notification_id,start_time,end_time from icinga_notifications order by notification_id desc limit 25;
+-----------------+---------------------+---------------------+
| notification_id | start_time          | end_time            |

As you can see, the timestamps aren’t in 1969 and aren’t even at XX:33:42.

I’m guessing it’s a PHP configuration bug, but I don’t know where to start looking…
