They changed the date by 3 weeks or so.  So all dates in that range are
affected.  Might happen during the fall "back" time period too.

Basically, somewhere in the stack of date translation something has the
wrong logic, likely it is the OS... are they on an old unpatched OS?

Hi,

At a guess because all time from that date as converted to an hour less make
the dates one day before and the hours 23:00. The problem gets worse when
the user machine is set to a different timezone to the server.

The best way around this issue (if you can) is to send time/date as UTC
(milliseconds) or as a string representing the date eg (YYYY-MM-DD) to try
and avoid the automatic timezone conversion done by the Flash Player.

Thanks,
Justin
