I'm having a real problem with unbackdating journal entries.

If I post an entry as backdated, and then try and unbackdate it, it stays backdated.

This is what I send to post the initial entry...
mode=postevent&user=thelovebug&hpassword=[snip]&event=Why+is+this+still+not+unbackdated%3F&subject=Test&year=2003&mon=03&day=01&hour=20&min=44&prop_picture_keyword=choccybug&prop_current_moodid=&prop_current_mood=&prop_current_music=&prop_opt_preformatted=0&prop_opt_nocomments=0&prop_opt_noemail=0&security=private&prop_opt_backdated=1&usejournal=
The entry posts as backdated successfully.

This is what I send to remove backdating...
mode=editevent&user=thelovebug&hpassword=[snip]&itemid=768&event=Erm...Why+is+this+still+not+unbackdated%3F&subject=Test&year=2003&mon=03&day=01&hour=20&min=44&security=private&prop_opt_backdated=0
You'll notice that I've changed the value of event. This was to see if my editevent request was being sent ok. The event text does change on the entry, so I know it's working ok. But the entry remains backdated.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Update: I may have solved this, as I think I was using the wrong Content-type declaration. But I'm a bit confused as to why that would have stopped editevent from working, when it didn't affect postevent. :-\
