I have as yet received no reply. However, I think there is something generally
wrong with timezones as well. I corrected the system time for daylight
savings, but now CRON is off by an hour. It seems CRON is still on standard
time, and didn't notice the change to the system time. As soon as I get a
chance, I'm going to check the buglist for cron and see if this is an already
known bug.

Something must be wrong with the latest version of glibc, because I didn't
have these problems with slink.
