Bug #501

IPTC field parsing is still too strict: shouldn't fail if the type is not as expected

When exiv2 parses an IPTC field which is expected to contain a date or time value, it will fail with an "Unsupported time/date format" error if the format can't be parsed and not read the field.
Instead it should not depend on the content to be a time or date value and fallback on a string type if the first attempt fails.
