Thanks for your response. My computer time is currently set to year 2013, year for which Daylight Savings time take effect (tonight USA Eastern Time)
I was only trying to suggest that the locale for the system may be interpreting the DST rules for the calendar year 2000 specifically, while the task was running. The DST rules for 2k were different than they are now. The jump forward at 2AM was in April in 2000, whereas it's in March currently. That modification occurred in 2007.
We'll next leave this thread for others to contribute.
