Description:
------------
strtotime( 'last Sunday' ) produces an incorrect value.

Reproduce code:
---------------
echo "Current time():\n";
echo date( 'Y-m-d H:i:s', time() );
echo "\nBroken strtotime( 'last Sunday' )\n";
echo date( 'Y-m-d H:i:s', strtotime( 'last Sunday' ) );
echo "\n";

Expected result:
----------------
I expect to see the date 2008-03-09, the correct value for strtotime( 'last Sunday' ), today being 2008-03-10, a Monday.

Actual result:
--------------
strtotime( 'last Sunday' ) produces 2008-03-08 23:00:00, a value one hour short of correct.  Seems like an issue with the recent daylight savings time change.

We are sorry, but we can not support PHP 4 related problems anymore.
Momentum is gathering for PHP 6, and we think supporting PHP 4 will
lead to a waste of resources which we want to put into getting PHP 6
ready.
