[Samba] Timezone confusion: net time \\server ...

Hi list,

I am a bit confused how the time sync between samba and windows should
be done correctly.
On the samba server I have set the CMOS time to GMT (UTC) and my
timezone is UTC+2 (germany). On windows the CMOS time is set to my
timezone (windows can't handle UTC, did that change? XP here, but
dualboot to linux) and as I issue net time \\server /set /YES it sets
the time but minus one hour... how come? I did not find a solution on
the net, nor in the docs. I did found some threads about this, but as
here all seems to be set up correctly I am a bit lost. Any ideas?
