It seems that I lost track of this issue.  Sorry.

IIRC the patch looked good insofar as it appeared to address only the
observed problem and to be properly documented and formatted although I
was not able to reproduce the problem.

Right, the patch was not applied.

Eli pointed out that the root cause lies in the dst handling in
ms-windows (and not in newsticker). That makes the patch more of a
work-around than a fix.

I admit that I am not very much inclined to check and apply the patch as
I do not have a ms-windows box to run tests on.

Eli, what do you think?
