Nothing is broken in that example.  They are truly different.

DateAndTime now relates to a particular timezone, Date today does not.

Please read the class comment of both Date and DateAndTime.

I can't use the same code as given in the Pharo example (we don't have a #translateToUTC), but equivalent code shows the issue:
