Strange problem with GMT on Solaris




I have a strange problem on Solaris:

The gmtime() function on Solaris seems to return the wrong value. It is one
hour ahead of GMT which means that all date header values in a HTTP request
or response is one hour ahead of GMT. This is for example the case on our
www.w3.org servers which certainly confuses a lot of caches!

It is simple to test:

	time_t calendar = time(NULL);
	struct tm *gmt = gmtime(&calendar);
    	strftime(buf, 40, "%a, %d %b %Y %H:%M:%S GMT", gmt);

Has anybody else heard of this problem?
