Comment 1 Petr Machata 2009-04-06 13:22:24 UTC
If I understand it correctly, Cairo DST should switch at midnight of local time.  That's what I see in your output.  Is it supposed to be midnight UTC?  Can you reference any materials supporting that claim?  Thanks.

Comment 2 Petr Machata 2009-04-06 13:24:27 UTC
Disregard that, you talk about the end date.
