It is indeed a MySQL bug. from_unixtime(0) is now NULL instead of
"1970-01-01" aka the Epoch. This is the relevant upstream bug report:
I reassigned the bug report to my packages and will try to backport the fix as
it might take some time until MySQL releases a new version. 

This seems to be the upstream changesets:
4.0: http://lists.mysql.com/internals/20093
4.1: http://lists.mysql.com/internals/20122
5.0: http://lists.mysql.com/internals/20223
