Description: This is related to how Flash player handles DST. The start of DST only has 23 hours and the end has 25 hours. If a dateDiff includes this date, it can potentially throw the date calculation off. This is part of Flash player, so until a new Date class can be created (someone actually is working on this, so the fix may not be too far off), this will continue to be an issue.

It will not affect most dateDiffs though, so it is a very minor issue (the hour that is added or removed generally will not affect the outcome of the dateDiff)
