I don't know on point, but I can tell you how to find out 'in general'.

Do print `type(known_dbiDate_object)`, and that will print enough 
information to figure out what type it actually is. If you're having 
difficulty with type and isinstance, then there's a good chance you're 
not really looking at dbiDate objects.

If you don't get any answers on point, then perhaps reduce your code 
down to a snippet that doesn't work, and post that sample here, 
including any output from 'debug stubs' like the above. We might be 
able to help you even if we don't have the stuff installed.
