Timezones not used everywhere?

I'm using an "un-crippled" (according to the "Freerunner Quickstart"
wiki page) GTA02, with factory image (only opkg upgraded tonight). I
display a digital clock on my home screen, and it also displays the
date in the bottom. For I'm living in France, I made the
/etc/localtime symlink to the Europe/Paris tz (GMT +2, these days). So
far so good, the time and date were both displayed correctly.

And then, maybe an hour or two before midnight (I couldn't guess so I
didn't check precisely, but I will next time), as hours/minutes stayed
correct, the "date" field went wrong. Well, not exactly "wrong", but
"tomorrow". Like few hours too soon. Sounds to me like the "date"
field is using universal time when it should not, but I can be wrong.

Any idea/insight on this?

Thanks alot... I hope it was clear, for it's already time to sleep here.
