Bug for date --utc

I have just downloaded the latest drop (vb20.1) and this problem is
still present. The "date" command always returns the local time, even if
you use the --utc flag which should return the universal time.

This has become a problem for us since we use CVS in a mixed Windows &
Unix environment. When I check in files from my Windows NT box, CVS
attempts to stamp them with the universal time but instead gets the
local time (which is six hours off).

For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"gnu-win32-request@cygnus.com" with one line of text: "help".
