I am using your port on 1.7, and cannot reproduce.

In my *scratch* buffer:

      Time-stamp: <2009-05-14 10:33:36 emagiro>
(getenv "TZ")
nil

I filled the template:

      Time-stamp: <>

with the time-stamp command, and the time matches my clock.

Note that my local timezone is now:

src> date
Thu May 14 10:35:36 GMTDT 2009

Looking at the sources, the most suspicious place given your description,
seems to be msdos.c, around lines 4453-4494...

Thanks,
Marc
