We are  agreeing.  There is the need for a member  (whether  the name is
tm_zone or tm_adj as it is in HP's  implementation)  in the tm structure
which gives the  difference  between GMT and localtime in seconds.  This
applies specifically to the time value in the tm structure.

Sorry about any confusion.
