A stored value from time() in a mysql varchar field,
put into a date time array with getdate()
the date time array outputs an incorrect day of the month (less by one day in my tests).

Apache 1.3
mysql 3.23.51-max-nt
country Australia, Melbourne Time

example scripts

echo time();
cut and pasted output into mysql field of type varchar (14).
(why? because I am still building data input section, verified that time was actually correct in database using strftime() ) 

used this line to retrive date :-
$date_time_array = getdate ($myrow["NEWS_DATE"]);

used this function to output data :-
$date_time_array[ "wday"]

this produced the incorrect date, date was incorrect by one day (less),
when replaced with this function :-
strftime ("%d" ,$myrow["NEWS_DATE"])

the correct time was output.

Sorry if my explanation was not satisfactory or I am entirely wrong. I didnt want to waste your time but I didnt see anything in the bug section about it.
