Most bugs are related to the implementation of TimeZone. TimeZone doesn't
calculate the correct UtcOffset making almost all DateTime instances contain
an incorrect number of ticks (this is in cygwin). Also, all the unit tests
assume the tests are run in CET, so if you're not in timezone CET you'll see
quite some errors that aren't.
