what could cause the timezone in PHP to, randomly, jump back and forth 6 hours now and then?

from phpinfo():

date/time support     enabled
"Olson" Timezone Database Version     0.system
Timezone Database     internal
Default timezone     America/Chicago

Directive    Local Value    Master Value
date.default_latitude    31.7667    31.7667
date.default_longitude    35.2333    35.2333
date.sunrise_zenith    90.583333    90.583333
date.sunset_zenith    90.583333    90.583333
date.timezone    Europe/Sweden    Europe/Sweden

"Default timezone" jumps between "America/Chicago" and "Europe/Berlin" while "date.timezone" stays "Europe/Sweden" all the time...


you're not on multiple load balanced / dns round robin servers are you..?

no.. it's just a home server...

home server is windows xp or vista, when you installed the os it was set to locale America/Chicago (control panel, locales) you then changed it to Europe/Sweden - as a developer you frequently hit a key combination by mistake which switches locale, and php picks it up to fix remove the extra america/chicago locale in control panel and problem sorted

if thats it i'll eat my hat lol

also PHP shows the correct unix time... only the timezone is messed up by 6 hours now and then...
