Does it make any difference, if you build Emacs with/without this patch:

diff -Naur emacs.orig/src/strftime.c emacs/src/strftime.c
--- emacs.orig/src/strftime.c   2007-01-14 04:24:37.000000000 +0100
+++ emacs/src/strftime.c        2008-11-27 09:42:03.109375000 +0100
@@ -54,7 +54,7 @@
 # endif
-#ifndef USE_CRT_DLL
+#if !defined (USE_CRT_DLL) && !defined (CYGWIN)
 extern char *tzname[];

In my case (I build 'with') the difference is 2 hours:

Emacs says that are 3.22 PM, instead they are 17:22. If Emacs has to
print the Greenwich Time, then it should be 16.22 (but perhaps I haven't
understood how time works...)
