Whatever about DST, this reminds me that there may actually be some real
problems in our code with negative leap seconds, and there is still a
chance there will be a negative leap second in late 2007. 

We have a few code-paths that will fail for that I think (like trying to
calculate bandwidth rates, or times of downloads and so on).
