 Testcase showing expected and unexpected rountrip errors

+Having done some more investigation this problem is bigger than just the timezone/
+utcoffset boundary; localtime/gmtime differences from the Win32 API provide a 4 hr block

+looking at icall.c (where ves_icall_System_CurrentTimeZone_GetTimeZoneData gets called) 
+this makes sense as we fall to the Win32APIs on Windows.
+PS. Note; you must be in a timezone that supports ST/DT at this rollover; I suggest EST/
