Currently fighting to get unit tests working again...

Russian time zones went onto permanent DST on March 23rd 2011.

Windows is *brokenly* reporting them as going back to standard time, forever, 
on January 1st 2012.

I suspect this would be fixed by hotfix 2657025: 
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2657025
... but I'm not sure yet. (And I don't want to apply the fix just yet.)

As ever, we should be trying to make our BclTimeZone mirror whatever the 
original TimeZoneInfo does. This is... interesting.

Working on it...
