Symptoms

It was found that the Universal Event Loader (UEL), loads different timestamps from the same input data record, on different systems.

For example, in a production system, a date in the input file like (just an example): 200505021752 (2005, May 2nd, 17:52) was loaded by the UEL into the event_t with EFFECTIVE_T = END_T = 1115052720

On a different, testing system, we found that the same date 200505021752 was loaded with timestamp 1115049120, that is, one hour less than in production.
