cron has gone to UTC time?

On a slink machine I have a crontab entry that should perform an rsync
of a site that I mirror around 22:40 my time (-0600).  I have started to
get the reports from the job a little after 16:40 my time which just
happens to be 22:40 UTC.

 $ crontab -l
 # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - edit the master and reinstall.
 # (/tmp/crontab.XXXXa09953 installed on Fri Nov  6 16:21:32 1998)
 # (Cron version -- $Id: crontab.c,v 2.13 1994/01/17 03:20:37 vixie Exp $)
 # mail any output to `bates', no matter whose crontab this is
 # run forty one minutes after ten p.m., every day
 41 22 * * *      /usr/bin/rsync -vrlt --exclude=bin/linux/debian ftp.ci.tuwien.ac.at::CRAN /home/ftp/pub/R

 $ date --utc 
 Wed Jan 27 22:48:13 UTC 1999

The version of the cron package is 
 $ dpkg -s cron
 Package: cron
 Version: 3.0pl1-50
 Maintainer: Steve Greenland <stevegr@debian.org>

Is there a chance that cron has switched to UTC?
