Yes, the issue was the one that was mentioned in an XXX comment: in many places UTC offset was different at different historical times but standard C library and Python's time module provides a single constant for it.  There are plenty of examples that can be found in Olson's database (Europe/Kiev comes to mind), but it is not easy to devise a test that will work cross-platform.  Maybe we should just restrict the test to Linux/BSD family of OSes?
