`cvs log', prior to 1.12.12 or so, outputs times in the UTC timezone,
but does not label them as such.  Times passed as arguments to -D on the
CVS command line are interpreted in the client's local timezone, which,
unless you live in the same longitude as Greenwich, England, will be at
least an hour off.

The easiest way to work around this, prior to 1.12.12, is to add either
the string "UTC" or  the string "+0000" to the end of the time you are
cutting and pasting from the `cvs log' output and into a command line
