However, consider this:

datenum('2001-03-25 02:00:00'), datenum([2001 03 25 2 0 0])

ans =  730935.125000000
ans =  730935.083333333

which may or may not be related to bug #36954

Duplicate of bug #36954

datevec('25.03.2001 02:00:00', 'dd.mm.yyyy HH:MM:SS')

Interestingly, the answer is

ans =

   2001      3     25      3      0      0

which is not what one would expect and not what ML gives. Is it because the 'dd.mm.yyyy HH:MM:SS' format string is not among those mentioned in the datestr help?
