function format_date in common.inc is using gmdate() incorrectly.  the
function is trying to format a local timestamp, and GMT conversion is
incorrect in this case.  date() should be used instead.  bug also
exists in 4.6, and this patch should apply there, too.  haven't checked
the earlier versions of drupal...
