Thanks, it seems, that Joost in 2007 has falling in same problem as I 
now, when working on fcl-db test suite.
(now I catch this also when working on fcl-db test suite)
I guess, that he has wrote tests for dates '01/01/0001' and now I am 
writting test for datetimes '01/01/0001 00:00:01' to '01/01/0001 23:59:59'.
So if this constant can not be changed, then I must write workaround for 
date '01/01/0001' and do not add time part to this date.
