I can confirm that the problems you are seeing are your very own. As a UK RT 
xmltv user I have noticed absolutely *no* problems since the hour changeover. 
All the times were/are correct and of the many programs I have recorded since 
every one has come in on time and recorded the correct thing.

Do you run ntpd on every relevant host? Are they syncing to the correct 
reference sites? Is your timezone data up to date and correct - and identical on 
all hosts?

In other news, I have a network tape backup which is set to run at 01:05 every 
night. Guess what I found when I logged in Sunday morning...
