This difference is important for domUs, which switch daylight saving on
there own, since the state is kept inside the VM and must be in sync
with the RTC provided by Xen.

What versions of Xen is that true for ?

I tested xen-3.4 and 4.1 and had a short look at 3.2, which all seemd to have that behaviour.

I didn't think that old
versions behaved this way for HVM. The libvirt Xen driver is still
intended to support the RHEL5 vintage Xen code (which is based on
3.0.3)

I'll try to install RHEL5 and take a look, but not before friday.

Sincerely
Philipp
