Description Cindy 2004-10-04 14:57:54 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET 
CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
When mktime() is called with 2nd long hour on the daylight saving's 
long day,  it returns the GMT time the same as the first hour on the 
long day even the tm_isdst is set to 0.

Note:  for the first hour --> tim_isdst is set to 1 (mktime works OK)
       for the second hour -> tim_isdst is set to 0 (mktime retunrs
       the same GMT time as the first hour instead of 3600 seconds

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Check your system's daya light saving long day
2.  Write test program to call mktime() with your system;s long time
3.  Pass the first hour and second long hour to mktime()

Actual Results:  Check the return from mktime()
both hours return the same time

Expected Results:  The second hour should be 3600 seconds more than 
the first hour

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2004-10-12 09:28:27 EDT
Can you provide a testcase?  The test I posted above shows things
work as they are supposed to.
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2004-10-30 05:28:30 EDT
If you have a testcase that shows some bug, please reopen.
