[Samba] Time stamps

I am new to SAMBA and I have what I'm not even sure is an issue. I am 
aware of the difference in time stamps between *nix and Windows. What I 
don't understand is this: I used touch to modify the time stamps of a 
large number of files on the file server from the server side to match 
the time in the file name. They were video files from my Digital Video 
Cam and the import program used the time stamp of the video as part of 
the file name when importing. It was easy to do with a little command 
line script, so I update all the time stamps to match. However, when I 
look at the files from my Windows laptop, I noticed some of the time 
stamps are off by one hour. I double checked the times on the server and 
they are correct. I also noticed that the files that are off by and hour 
appear to fall within daylight savings time. Is this a common problem 
with SAMBA and Windows, or is there something I have configured incorrectly?
