No problems here, either, using up-to-date potato with libc6 2.1.3-7.
I haven't seen it documented, but from experience, I believe the
daylight saving change is only done if the hardware clock is set to
GMT (UTC=yes in /etc/default/rcS).
For those who complained about cron being off, see man (8)cron:
Special considerations exist when the clock is changed by
less than 3 hours, for example at the beginning and end of
daylight savings time. If the time has moved forwards,
those jobs which would have run in the time that was
skipped will be run soon after the change. Conversely, if
the time has moved backwards by less than 3 hours, those
jobs that fall into the repeated time will not be run.
Only jobs that run at a particular time (not specified as
@hourly, nor with '*' in the hour or minute specifier) are
affected. Jobs which are specified with wildcards are run
based on the new time immediately.
Clock changes of more than 3 hours are considered to be
corrections to the clock, and the new time is used immedi
