Shouldn't it be
>>> myts.dates[myts.dates.weekday==1] += 1
>>> myts.dates
DateArray([17-Apr-1972, 19-Apr-1972, 19-Apr-1972, 20-Apr-1972, 21-Apr-1972,
       22-Apr-1972, 23-Apr-1972, 24-Apr-1972, 26-Apr-1972, 26-Apr-1972],
          freq='D')

Now, there's still a pb with has_duplicated_dates which is not properly updated. The reason is that we store the status in a cache to avoid having to recalculate it. In most cases, it works, but here, the cache should be deleted... Use myts.dates._reset_cachedinfo() to reset the cache to its default as a workaround. 
Please fill a ticket as well... Thx
