Your main problem has already been answered but it's worth noting that you can eliminate this function entirely by using "%02l" in your format specification and passing the integer values from your time structure directly to give:

Printf.sprintf "%02l/%02l/%l %02l:%02l:%02l" date.Unix.tm_mday (date.Unix.tm_mon + 1) (date.Unix.tm_year + 1900) date.Unix.tm_hour date.Unix.tm_min date.Unix.tm_sec

It's worth having a complete read of the top of the Printf page in the standard library reference just to see the things it can do.
