I'm not sure if I don't get the clue, but please consider this:
> strptime("19930870150","%Y%j%H%M")
[1] "1993-03-28 01:50:00"
> strptime("19930870250","%Y%j%H%M")
[1] "1993-03-28 01:50:00"
> strptime("19930870350","%Y%j%H%M")
[1] "1993-03-28 03:50:00"

The behaviour is the same with R1.7.1 on Window2000 as on a R1.8.1 on sunOS

Thanks for the reply, Christoph
