I use Xamarin Studio 5.5.2 for android development. I am from Russia. 
Moscow time changed at 26th of October from gmt+4 to gmt+3.
And now all apps for android which use "DateTime.Now" stop working.

We have checked this issue and unable to reproduce it.

We tried following steps to reproduce it.
1.Create a Xamarin.Android Appliction.
2.Set Time zone to +4.00 .
3.Did code on button click event.
button.Text = string.Format("{0} clicks!", DateTime.Now.ToString());
4.Run the application.
5.Set Timezone to +3.00
6.Did following code on button click.
button.Text = string.Format("{0} clicks!", DateTime.Now.ToString());
7.Run the application.

We observed that application running successfully without any crash.

Could you please provide us Build output,IDE log(In Xs Help->Open Log Directory latest log ),Environment Info,So that we can able to reproduce at our end.

Let me know if I missed anything to reproduce at our end?
