It works fine on my XP system.  If you can find out why it doesn't on
yours, or confirm Jason's suspicion that it misbehaves on any Windows
box set for a timezone without DST rules, please do.  Failing that,
you are free not to use that command.  It's a toy command, anyway,
IMO.

But disabling a command that works for many users sounds too drastic
to me.

Patches are more than welcome.  Thanks in advance.
