Description Oleg Gavrilov 2014-10-10 04:56:44 UTC

From Sept. 26, when you call DateTime.Now, it will return time with 1 hour less. Then, if current date on machine will be changed to 27 Oct., DateTime.Now will return correct value. 

Steps to Reproduce:

1. On iOS 8, set timezone to +5 UTC Ekaterinburg.
2. Set current date on device to 26 September 2014.
3. Get current date and time like this: 
4. Compare time on device with output, there will be 1 hour difference (error).
5. Set current date on device to 27 September 2014.
6. Get current date and time, it will be equal with time, displayed on device.

Additional Information:
Tested in time zone +5 UTC Ekaterinburg (Russia) , on Mac OS X 10.9 and iOS 8.

My guess is that in DST logic, there is error when calculating current month (months are started not from 0)
