Problems with time changes

Wayne,
The best solution at this point is to switch to a time zone that does not
use daylight savings such as Bogota, Columbia and adjust your time
accordingly. On Sunday everything will be back to normal.

I found the same article on MS' web site yesterday. But it only talks of
an entire service pack for visual studio. Is there just a DLL or two I can
update to have the run time stuff working OK?
