Using the following code with the month of October (any year), generates an endless loop; all other months are fine. 

     $dtDate = ("10/01/00");
     $nMonth = ("10");

     do {
          // Build a calendar table
          $dtDate = (date("m/d/y", (strtotime($dtDate) + 86400)));
     } while (date("m", strtotime($dtDate)) == $nMonth);

I am using PHP 4.0.2 and Apache 1.3.12 under MS Windows 98 SE. I have tested this script using Linux, Apache and PHP3 and it executes OK for all months.

This seems to be because of daylight saving settings. It is wrong to suppose that day is always 86400 seconds. With DST in effect, day can be a hour shorter or a hour longer when DST is going on or off.
