gtimer: Handle gmtime() failure in g_time_val_to_iso8601()

g_time_val_to_iso8601() has a limit to the future dates it can convert,
imposed by what gmtime() can fit in its year field. If gmtime() fails,
gracefully return NULL from g_time_val_to_iso8601() rather than trying
to dereference the NULL structure and crashing.
