Problem with LED Clock and US Daylight Savings time

Since the US went on daylight savings time about 1 week ago, LED clock has been displaying the wrong time. It still displays the standard time (one hour before the daylight savings time), even though the phone's own clock display, and the shell "date" command, show the correct, daylight savings time. Do you know why I am having this problem, and how I might fix it?

Thanks for any info!

This can be solved with the following simple patch:
