Description:
------------
---
From manual page: http://www.php.net/datetimezone.getoffset
---

MDT (Mountain Daylight Time) is defined as UTC-6, while the PHP DateTimeZone object reports the offset as UTC-7 (same as MST/Mountain Standard Time).

Two tests are performed to check that day of the year (in or out of daylight saving's time) isn't effecting the result - MDT is always UTC-6 regardless of time of year (since UTC doesn't move)

Tested on PHP 5.5.11, 5.4.26, 5.3.28
NOTE: 5.5 differs from 5.4, 5.3
Untested (although perhaps implied) other Daylight time zones (PDT,CDT,EDT,ADT,NDT)


Test script:
---------------
<?php
$zone=new \DateTimeZone("MDT");

$o1=$zone->getOffset(new \DateTime("2012-01-01",$zone))/3600;
$o2=$zone->getOffset(new \DateTime("2012-08-01",$zone))/3600;
echo "2012-01-01: ".($o1==-6?"Pass":"Fail ($o1)")."\n";
echo "2012-08-01: ".($o2==-6?"Pass":"Fail ($o2)")."\n";

Expected result:
----------------
2012-01-01: Pass
2012-08-01: Pass

Actual result:
--------------
// 5.5.11-Win32-VC11-x86
2012-01-01: Fail (-7)
2012-08-01: Fail (-7)

// 5.4.26-Win32-VC9-x86
2012-01-01: Fail (-7)
2012-08-01: Pass

// 5.3.28-Win32-VC9-x86
2012-01-01: Fail (-7)
2012-08-01: Pass

I think the problem is related to here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2038_problem

Since PHP is still build for x86...

Can you try the x64 build? http://windows.php.net/download/

MDT still has a -7 offset when it should be -6. It's correct in versions of php before 5.5.10 and all versions of HHVM.
