DateTime.strptime bug?

Hi everyone,

I've been trying to find a solution for this but can't seem to find
anything. I'm current in Daylight Savings Pacific Time (-07:00). I've
configured all my default time zones to be for Pacific Time (US &
Canada). Everything works fine with ActiveRecords and filtering,
except DateTime.strptime which does not seem to recognize that
daylight savings is in effect.

I have something like this:

self.deadline = DateTime.strptime(deadline_date + " " + deadline_time
+ " " + time_zone, "%m/%d/%Y %H:%M:%S %Z") and it saves just fine
except it's an hour off. Any suggestions/help?
