Description:
------------
Starting with a date in standard time and subtracting over the DST "border", suddenly adds time.
Line 5 in the actual result below seems to be wrong.
Happens in all PHP versions from 5.4.24 & 5.5.8 onwards.

Test script:
---------------
$tz = new DateTimeZone('Europe/Brussels');
$date = new DateTime('2014-10-26T03:00:00', $tz);
$interval = new DateInterval('PT30M');

for ($i = 0; $i < 5; $i++) {
	echo $date->sub($interval)->format('c e T') . PHP_EOL;
}

Expected result:
----------------
2014-10-26T02:30:00+01:00 Europe/Brussels CET
2014-10-26T02:00:00+01:00 Europe/Brussels CET
2014-10-26T02:30:00+02:00 Europe/Brussels CEST
2014-10-26T02:00:00+02:00 Europe/Brussels CEST
2014-10-26T01:30:00+02:00 Europe/Brussels CEST

Actual result:
--------------
2014-10-26T02:30:00+01:00 Europe/Brussels CET
2014-10-26T02:00:00+01:00 Europe/Brussels CET
2014-10-26T02:30:00+02:00 Europe/Brussels CEST
2014-10-26T02:00:00+02:00 Europe/Brussels CEST
2014-10-26T02:30:00+02:00 Europe/Brussels CEST

I think i have the same problem. I can't sub() an hour to a DateTime that is set to the DST hour :

Indeed, there appears to be a regression in PHP 5.4.24, which
still isn't resolved, see <https://3v4l.org/rYAob>.
