           Summary: Date incorrect
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: 2.4.x
          Platform: i686
        OS/Version: openSUSE 11.1
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major

Description of Problem:

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Set local timezone to Australia/Perth
2. Console.WriteLine(DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString());

Actual Results:

Current time + 1 hour

Expected Results:

Current time 

How often does this happen? 


Additional Information:

Happens whether machine clock is set to UTC or to local time.  Does not happen
on Windows Mono or Windows Dot Net.


Returns 23/3/2009 on Windows (which is correct)
but 1/1/0001 on OpenSuse which is obviously not

zdump -v Australia/Perth | grep 2009 

gives this -

Australia/Perth  Sat Mar 28 17:59:59 2009 UTC = Sun Mar 29 02:59:59 2009 WST
Australia/Perth  Sat Mar 28 18:00:00 2009 UTC = Sun Mar 29 02:00:00 2009 WST

I believe this means that DST ended at 02:59:59 on Mar 29th.
