SELECT DATE('2003-12-31 01:02:03'); does not work.
Neither does: 
SELECT TIME('2003-12-31 01:02:03');

How to repeat:
Just copy-paste the SELECT DATE, SELECT TIME example from the documentation
in a mysql client and you are done.

Suggested fix:
Install PostgreSQL or anything else that works :). Sorry for the flame but I desperately needed this functions to work out of the box as shown in the documentation. Either fix the documentation or the bug itself.

Sorry, but I can't repeat the behaviour you described:
