Comment (by jdgrimes):

 Replying to [comment:3 Rarst]:
 > That `Etc/*` conversion method for `gmt_offset` case is unreliable
 (won't handle half–hour cases for example).
 > For my take on it see my `WpDateTime` lib:

 Thanks for pointing that out. I suspected that there was an issue there
 and was planing to take a closer look at that today. I've updated the
 patch, see [attachment:40653.diff].
