Hi Mark and Simon,
Well I think it's a Windows problem.
In fact, on my machine, running on Windows 98 Second edition, there are two
types of GMT....
1. (GMT) Greenwich mean Time, Dublin, Lissabon, London
2. (GMT) Casablanca, Monrovia.
If you have your computer running on GMT you should choose the second one!
Its is strange but it works.
Disabling the daylight savings adjustment in Windows does not help to solve
I think that the first choice has something to do with winter and summer
time, and the second one has only fixed time.
I have seen this problem before on other software, e.g. satellite tracking,
which problem was fixed by choosing "GMT Casablanca"
