From mono 3.0.2 (I don't know the version where it changed), the property LastWriteTime of the UnixFileSystemInfo class is returning the timestamp in UTC format instead of the local one. This was previously working fine.

The field LastWriteTimeUtc is also wrong because it's applying the UTC offset to a DateTime that is already in UTC format.

The methods Directory/File.GetLastWriteTime() continue correctly working.

I attach a tiny app code to check the behavior.
