Day Light Savings time

Hallo,
we have experienced this problem , there is one situation which will cause a problem EVERY time: the Day Light Savings time.
We have been using Tapeware for several years through several versions and all (including V7SP5c) seem to have a problem with the time ending of Day Light Savings time in the fall. It seems to arise from doing a full backup before the time change and then doing an incremental or differential after the time change. It is very easy to recreate this in a test environment. Simply set the clock to a day/time before daylight savings time (October 30, 2004 at 5PM) and run a full backup of a directory). Now set the clock to just before the time change (October 31, 2004 at 1:55 AM) and wait until the clock reaches 2 AM and falls back to 1 AM. Now run an incremental or differential backup against that same directory and notice that every file is backed up. This poses great problems when backing up large amounts of data in full backups that now need to be rerun to correct the problem.
There is a way to fix the problem?

Thanks.
