We in Europe returned this night from DST CEST. In the night, when my system
FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT r292778 (amd64)
was down, all the clocks were set back from 03:00 (CEST) to 02:00 (CET). When I
booted my system the date(1) command was showing correctly string 'CET' but the
wrong hour, still the one hour ahead, until I run ntpdate(8), one can
see this also in messages:

$ grep 'Oct 30' /var/log/messages | egrep 'boot|su:|-360'               
Oct 30 09:42:17 c720-r292778-amd64 syslogd: kernel boot file is /boot/kernel/kernel
Oct 30 10:08:06 c720-r292778-amd64 su: guru to root on /dev/pts/2
Oct 30 09:08:23 c720-r292778-amd64 ntpdate[1887]: step time server offset -3601.499175 sec

Also my first e-mail went out with the wrong setting, sent at 09:01:55 CET:

1990, when the Russians stood in Germany at river Elbe, we have had peace. Today the
NATO stands in the Baltic States, in Poland ..., and we have war all over the world.
