> Werner, I think there is a further problem with timezone settings.

You mean the leap seconds calculations when using TAI as your timezone?
(Is that valid at all?).  I have not checked POSIX what it tells about
this but I recall that there was some disagreement on the leapseconds
topic a couple of years ago.

One of the problems is that time_t was never meant to describe arbitrary
dates and in particular not those in the future.  This is why gpgsm uses
a string to represent times.
