[Samba] Daylight saving time problem.

 	Tripwire seems to freak out a bit during DST changes on my
Windows boxes; the timestamps on a lot of the files change by an hour
one way or the other (depending on which switch of DST it is).
	So it's a Windows problem as far as I know, but I don't know of
a fix.
