Nope, it doesn't correct properly for daylight savings time.  It's not
generally relevant to the operation of INN since news messages are
required to contain time zone information and it works properly when a
time zone is provided.

The problem is with the parsedate routine in lib.  I found this a while
back, but couldn't figure out a good way to fix it.
