I have a red hat 3 system running 3.0.4  It did not successfully
adjust for daylight savings time.    Everything else on the system is
fine - syslog is showing the correct time stamps, the system reports
the correct time.   Restart of syslog-ng, and shutting down both
syslog and syslog-ng did not help.  I didn't see anything in the lists
addressing this, here are details of my syslog-ng:

[fabric at netlog dhcp]$ sudo /usr/local/sbin/syslog-ng -V

 I didn't see anything in the man page for adjusting for time.  I have
keep_timestamp(no) configured in my conf file.   The systems sending
the syslog files time is correctly adjusted for daylight savings.  Is
this a bug in this particular version, or am I just missing the right
flag or something?     chris
