Brazil usually switches DST on midnight, so it is possible that this point
of time does not exist if it happens to fall on a DST transition.  Now
Brazil has recently changed its DST rules that makes this point of time
valid again, but you still have this problem with other dates like
2005-10-16 00:00.
