In particular, when the Windows timezone setting dialogue says GMT, they 
don't really mean GMT, they really mean UK civil time (or Moroccan, 
depending on the setting).  I think there may be an option to disable DST.

This is basically the result of dumbing down the user interface to match 
the expectations of the general public.
