Yes, don't set expiry dates >= 2038.

This is actually expected behaviour with current systems, and if you like, could be considered to be the second and rather more significant "year 2000 problem".

The date range for 32 bit time_t values, as used by e.g. Unix, is 1970 to January 19, 2038. 30 odd years ago when Unix started this seemed fine, and with 30 years to go, it's still ok, but obviously this issue will need to be addressed in operating systems by then. This shouldn't be too much of a concern as realistically the chance of your scripts and PHP being still in use in 30 years time is remote.
