We do put the timezone in the props, don't we:

$ svn pg --revprop svn:date -rHEAD https://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk
2008-05-25T00:03:02.098312Z

That 'Z' at the end there is very relevant indeed, it indicates timezone
"Zulu" a.k.a. UTC. If the timestamp parsing code doesn't take the
timezone tag into account and correctly adjust the time for it, then it
is, to put it mildly, broken.
