Feed item date is Nov 29, 1999 (bad post_date_gmt)

I've observed this in both 2.5 branch (post 2.5.1 release), and in 2.6b1. I haven't come up with a way to reliably reproduce it. I suspect, however, that it might have something to do with autosave?
On recently published items, the post_date_gmt field is sometimes not getting set (value '0000-00-00 00:00:00'). Oddly enough, with post revisions, post_date_gmt *is* set correctly, but not on the final published version. The most visible side-effect is that items in feeds have the wrong timestamp. Of the last six posts on my site, three exhibit this problem, but I can't find a pattern to which ones do and don't.
