    Daylight Savings Snafu Affecting Recurring Dates? (XP/SP2)

    I've noticed lately that recurring dates, such as birthdays, now appear on the actual day and the next day in my calendar.

    I've checked the source entry for the series and it's correct, e.g., Occurs every April 9 effective 4/9/2007 (GMT-06:00) Central Time (US & Canada).

    But the same entry also appears on April 10, which is confusing.

    Is this a result of the Daylight Savings conversion fiasco or a symptom of something more ominous?

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    Thanks.

    Neal

    Outlook's "all day events" such as birthdays have always been a problem since they are not truly "all day events", they just last from 0:00 AM to 0:00 AM the next day. If the time changes because of the DST changes, the events shift by 1 hour, so they span 2 days.
