Ok, further test (see attached perl routine):

[root at psg-apps tmp]# ./test.pl.txt
current time() output:          1339054410

fixed-date Time::ParseDate:     1339113600
tomorrow 10am Time::ParseDate:  1339113600

fixed-date RT::Date output:     1339149600
tomorrow 10am RT::Date output:  1339200000
timezone according to RT::Date: 36000

Using either 'user' or 'server' as the timezone I get the same result but I'm probably missing something here for the fixed-date (I can accept that the date might be being modified elsewhere I'm yet to find), but the 'tomrorow 10am' shouldn't be a full day off.  So the adding of the timezone offset before Time::ParsEdate::parsedate then removing it again appears to be causing the issue here; pushing today past the end of the day boundary.

I'll try this routine tomorrow morning (before 10am) to see if it shows the right thing, then try to figure out a way to get it to return the same result for the two RT::Date outputs.
