Error Message :

Since version 6, the uxdat command returns a wrong result when the format used is aaaaqqq when launching it several times.

For example:

We set a value for DATEDEBUT with DATEDEBUT=2017001

Then we do DATEDEBUT=`$UNI_DIR_EXEC/uxdat aaaaqqq ${DATEDEBUT} aaaaqqq +1m` ; echo $DATEDEBUT

The result is 2017032 all the time.

If the date is on another format like aaaamm for example, the calculation is ok
