I'm testing GNU Emacs 24.4.91.2 (x86_64-pc-mingw32) of 2015-03-13 on
LEG570 for a couple of days, directly from GDB, without crash.  I have
the _impression_ that my problem is not present (not at all, or not as
often) in the pretest of 24.5 as it was in 24.4 -- good news if this is
confirmed over time.

Though, this morning, in the above configuration (Cygwin GDB + pretest
of Emacs 24.5), I had a problem with the Org timestamps: they were one
hour late, like if the computer clock hadn't been updated with the
"summer" times here in Europe (since this Saturday).

I finally found that the problem does not come from Emacs itself, but
from the fact it's launched from Cygwin GDB!

When launched directly, the times (result of `format-time-string') are
correct...

See http://screencast.com/t/lFMrkqBgDR for a comparison.

Any idea how this problem can be circumvented?

Best regards,
  Seb
