FY Variants - week 53 in 2008

Dear experts,

In my company we are using DP forecasting weeks, starting on Saturday going through to Friday.

For 2008, I was able to set up my FY variant to deal with week 53 like this:

Month Day Week# Year shift

--> 2008: 12 31 53 0

--> 2009: 01 02 53 -1

--> 2009: 01 09 01 0

This gives me week 52/2008 - 20 dec til 26 dec

week 53/2008 - 27 dec til 02 jan

week 01/2009 - 03 jan til 09 jan

When continuing building 2009 and 2010... I'm geting stuck on week 52 of 2009

Month Day Week# Year shift

--> 2009: 12 31 52 0

--> 2010: 01 01 52 -1

--> 2010: 01 08 01 0

This should give me week 52/2009 - 26 dec til 01 jan

week 01/2010 - 02 jan til 08 jan

However, when trying to save FY variant for 2010, I get this error message:

Gaps in Fiscal Year Variant xx.

The period specification has gaps. The periods must be sequentially numbered without any gaps.

Does anyone have any ideas why?

FYI: here's my full 2010 definition:
