Subject AW: [Tobago] Problem with DateTimeConverter
Date Wed, 20 Dec 2006 23:20:13 GMT
Another example:

Initializtion with date = new Date() at 13 minutes after midnight.
Date.toString() prints "Thu Dec 21 00:13:48 CET 2006", but the
page shows "20.12.2006" and I got back "Wed Dec 20 01:00:00 CET 2006" 
after submit. So every date with time part less than one our is dated
back one day. When I execute the same code after one o'clock in the
morning, the date is calculated correct (but the time part is always
set to one o'clock, where I expect zero).
