bug#23008: Daylight Savings Time Bug in Date

We detected a bug in the date program, which correlates to the daylight savings time change. A day disappeared from the date program between 12:00 AM and 1:00 AM on 3/14/16. The date program began working as expected immediately after 1:00 AM. Here is the bizarre output that I got for basic commands on 3/14/16:

   $ date -d -0days +%Y-%m-%d

   $ date -d -1days +%Y-%m-%d

Notice that I was unable to obtain the expected output of 2016-03-13 for the day prior. I was able to reproduce this using version 8.13 on Debian, and 8.21 on Mint.
