     Paul, do you have a unit test for these functions in some corner?

I'm afraid not, and it's low priority. timelocal is merely a nonstandard alias for mktime, and portable programs should use mktime. Although there is some use for timegm, the Gnulib-using code that I maintain calls the much more-general function mktime_z from the time_rz module, and if I had time to write tests I'd rather write them against mktime_z.
