In PPRM, I'll click on, for example, the "Due Date" link for a resource.
 In the box that pops up, I select a date, for example:
"Wed Oct 31 2007 18:00:00 GMT-0600 (MDT)"  is what shows up in the date
selection box.

However, when I submit that date, the PPRM screen now reports it as
"Wed Oct 31 17:00:00 2007 (MST)"

 Thanks, we'll see what we can find.
