DST problem ?

I discovered that right now B20.1 'date' gives the time 1 hour in the
future, similarly bash lists the date of my new files 1 hour in the future.
(Everything is fine with NT utilities, they list the correct time).
This seems to point to a problem with the DST settings. Indeed, using
'date -R' I get a +0100 timezone info, while I am in GMT.

I saw this problem last year on an old AIX machine as well. The reason is
that British Summer Time now 'sets in' at a different convention than it
used to. We had to manually set

Unfortunately, this does not help on cygwin. Where does cygwin get its
Timezone and DST info from ?
