I had the same problem once in the eXtremeManagement Plone product.
For a monthly overview I needed to do something for every day of the
month. I worked around it with the code below.
day = 1
date = DateTime(2007, 10, 1) # 1 October 2007
# skipped some lines irrelevant to the DateTime problem
day += 1
date = DateTime(self.year, self.month, day)
Hm, that should probably be "except DateTime.DateTime.DateError" but
there is not really anything else that can go wrong here.
