I downloaded the git branch, I had to use the Download 
pierregm/scikits.timeseries-sandbox at master via a zip file as I have not 
managed to get Git to work at Uni yet.
After deleting the old scikit I built and installed the new version but I am 
still getting the same error.
I notoiced you had some new tests to dealing with high- freq dates before the 
unix epoch.  When i run
ts.test() i get
Ran 0 tests in 0.000s


So I imagine I am doing something incorrectly.
