Ah, so RedHat actually implemented this fix.  Great.  I really hope it
make it into the upstream glibc source as well.

If you want some context for this problem, have a look at
<URL:http://sources.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=154>,
<URL:https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=133481>, and
<URL:http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=48184>.

So what you consider a bug is considered a feature by others.

Are you sure mktime() is the correct function for you to call?
