Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

This is a *well known issue* and it is caused by the 'Daylight Savings
Time' bug in WinCvs 1.2.
Please update your WinCvs to the latest version 1.3. The problem will
go away.
