[LON-CAPA-admin] Daylight Savings Time?

So I've been setting some due dates for next week, and notice that
LON-CAPA is turning those times from MDT to MST for me automagically.
Now this is quite nice, but with the new legislation, I don't think we
actually switch to standard time until November 4th here in the US.

So does this mean that I missed an update on my system (SUSE 9.3), or
perhaps that LON-CAPA needs some tweakage?  In principle I suppose it
doesn't matter, because 6pm MDT is the same as 5pm MST, as long as
LON-CAPA picks up the proper time zone. . .

Any insight on this potential problem would be appreciated.
