[mythtv-users] Recent issue with mythwelcome & mythshutdown --setwakeup

I'm running a Fedora 20 installation of MythTV and my master backend is also a 
frontend, so I've used mythwelcome for years now to shutdown and wake up the 
system.  Recently, I've noticed that the wrong time is getting passed to the 
wakeup command.  I didn't notice since the time always happens to always be 
2732 seconds earlier than the time it should be (so MythTV hasn't missed 

This is correct (it should wake at 11 minutes to 6PM to record the news):

~]# mythshutdown --setscheduledwakeup
Setting scheduled wakeup time: Attempting to connect to master server...                                                                                                                                                                     
Wakeup time given is: 3/13, 5:49 PM (local time)

But my logs show the following (where the "time_t" that is passed is wrong):

sudo[4097]: mythtv : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/ ; USER=root ; 
COMMAND=/bin/mythshutdown --setwakeup 2014-03-13T16:14:28
mythbackend[1196]: I Scheduler scheduler.cpp:2840 (CheckShutdownServer) 
CheckShutdownServer returned - OK to shutdown
mythbackend[1196]: N Scheduler scheduler.cpp:2935 (ShutdownServer) Running the 
command to set the next scheduled wakeup time :-
              sudo -H mythshutdown --setwakeup `date -d "@1394745268" +%FT%T`
sudo[4111]: mythtv : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/ ; USER=root ; 
COMMAND=/bin/mythshutdown --shutdown
mythbackend[1196]: N Scheduler scheduler.cpp:2966 (ShutdownServer) Running the 
command to shutdown this computer :-
              sudo -H mythshutdown --shutdown

I have MythTV set to use "time_t" but you can see that the time isn't 
calculated properly "--setwakeup 2014-03-13T16:14:28" which is what happens 
when "1394745268" is the time that is passed.

I have used this same configuration for a few years now with no need to change 
it and was wondering if anyone could offer some pointers on why things might 
be different now.

Thanks in advance.  -A
