One easy workaround would be to, when you start the backup program, to set
it to a timezone that does not have daylight savings time shifts. (eg: "
TZ=MST run_my_backup" )
This can be done on a per-process (or per-user) basis by setting the TZ
environment variable before
starting the process (or in a user's .*profile file)
