The segfault doesn't happen with a time one second before:
sambesi% strftime "%a %d.%m.%Y %H:%M:%S" 67768036191673199
Wed 31.12.-2147481749 23:59:59

This is a freshly compiled zsh 4.3.10 with --enable-zsh-debug.

I'm not used to produce or read backtraces, is the following helpful? Does it mean the problem is my libc?
