It's a DST issue, so maybe the folks who were working with LFS-7.0 in the summer didn't notice the breakage.  I see that coreutils is already at 8.15 in SVN, so I assume the devs have already moved on from this problem.  But, for those who want to build the 7.0 release book, you'll likely need this patch.

 Now, I *am* annoyed.  Or at least I would be if I wasn't so calm
and saintly :)


 And EVERYBODY, please read ALL the errata.

 BTW - your analysis is sound, but only for those people who have
had a daylight saving time change.  And you can see my own initial
notes on this in the archives of this list - that's usually a good
place to look for issues.
