Hi,

I'm the current maintainer. This bug is not fixed. The simplest
solution would be to use UTC times. Another to add the current
timezone to the snapshot name. Both not really satisfying. I would
just live on with that on mail per year until the nuisance of DST is
finally removed from our lives ;)
