I *think* this is a problem caused by the mono library because I can't
think what else could have caused it. Can anyone throw light on it?
I have a long-running server written in mono which needs to know its
time in local time. It runs on GMT+1 plus DST, where appropriate. This
morning in Europe, the clocks went forward. The system clock (Fedora
Linux 2.6.30 kernel) changed from 02:00 to 03:01, correctly at 01:00 to
Looking at the logs generated by the mono server, I see the time go from
01:58 to 02:00 (at 01:00 GMT) and then jump *backwards* an hour to
01:01, meaning it is now two hours out.
An hour later, at 02:00 GMT, it jumps forward *two* hours so that by
04:00 local it is back on the right time zone. As I said, the system
clock behaved correctly through this time.
