After the Daylight Savings Time change the "Last message was received on" time and individual message timestamps are off by one hour on any machine that has the TZ environment variable set.


This has been reported to development.

Additional Information

Workaround: If it is not necessary to set the TZ environment variable in a login script or by other means, removing this variable will allow Messenger to have the correct time information.
This variable can be checked by going to a command prompt and typing "set" then enter. Look for a variable called"TZ." If it is set to any value this problem will manifest.
