Two Outlook Time Zones change in March each year more than DST

I have two time zones shown in my Outlook calendar, Central (primary) and
Eastern (secondary).

There is always a 1 hour offset as expected. However, in the "week view"
for March 09-13, 2008 the offset is 2 hours. The following week, it goes
back to a 1 hour offset. Then if I advance to March 08-14, the 2 hour offset
returns for just that week.

I know that is the week DST comes into affect, but I don't think there is
supposed to be a two hour offset for that entire week.

Outlook is confused because when the time changes, ET is 2 hours ahead of CT
for 1 hr. Unfortunately, it uses the first day in the display to set the
time scale and there is no way for it to calculate the correct time for
other days or other hours in the view. The time scale wasn't designed to
change display when the default time is ahead of the secondary time.

BTW - this should only be an issue until DST goes into effect in CT - when
the computer updates the clock for DST, the times will be back in sync.

I have a similar issue with PST & EST. PST is my primary time & appts are
appearing at the correct time with the current DST correction; I show EST as
my additional time zone. There should be a 3-hr difference between PST &
EST, but when I add the additional time zone, there is a 4-hour offset…this
did not correct when EST DST went into affect.

Additionally, if I swap time zones, strangely enough, the TZ difference is
3-hrs. Weird.

switch to a view that does not begin on the Sunday the time changes and the
time scale will be correct. There is a similar issue in the fall. This
anomaly happens because the time scale doesn't drop an hour and it tries to
account for the temporary extra hour time difference.
