I saw that in one of the PODs I was reading through - but since all the examples I had found (including on PM) did not include it, I assumed that it was not really necessary. Doofus.

Thank you very much, this does the magic.

    At last I have found the definitive answer! The problem is with localtime rather than strftime.

    This problem happens only on Linux, and only with a threaded build of perl. There's some disgreement about whether the bug is in Linux or perl, but in either case a manual call to tzset is a good workaround.

    See the bug report and ensuing discussion here.
