Hello. I'm using Mono 2.6.7 (distro) on Debian squeezy, fully up to date, in 
my little enterprise environment.
Some days ago, I've noticed a strangest behavior - all my services, based on 
mono shows a wrong time on calling DateTime.Now (with a difference of 1 hour 
ago). Any other services (php and RoR-based) gives normal current time.

I've created simple test, and build it directly on server:

using System;

class Test
        public static void Main()
                Console.WriteLine("{0}", DateTime.Now);

and got next output:
user at server:~# ./test.exe 
10/12/2011 13:09:07
user at server:~# date
Wed Oct 12 14:09:10 FET 2011

i.e. local time handles correctly by all software except mono (local timezone 
is set correctly). May be it is Debian-specific (coz mono does not update 
recently, and some days ago all was fine)? Should I post it to Debian 

Thanks in advice, I need to fix it urgently, there are 3 servers with mono-
based services, and the same issue.

server:~# mono -V
