Effect of DST on synchronize command

Hi,
I just wanted to know regarding the effect of the DST on the synchronize command (during scripting). I am in Germany, and both my Windows XP and Linux machines are under the same DST and TimeZone (in the same city).
When I

synchronize both C:\Som_dir /home/userhome/Som_dir

It seems like WinScp always copies the files from the remote (Linux) to the local (Win XP) directory.

The first time this is OK for me but if I synchronize once again and neither files are changed then synchronizing again simply copies the files again. This never stops.

Thanks a lot.
O.O.

If you login using the same settings in GUI, what timestamps do you see in local and remote panels?

Thanks. What is your "daylight saving time" settings on Environment tab of login dialog? also what version of WinSCP are you using?

I should mention however that it did have the problems with files created before DST started
That's ok.

I'm running WinSCP 4.0 on Windows XP Pro, SP2. I'm currently doing some testing for the company I work for, and I've got freeFTPd installed on the same machine as WinSCP for my test SFTP server.

In WinSCP, I've tried all three DST settings [Preser&ve remote timestamp (Unix, Adjust remote timestamp with &DST (Windows), and Adjust remote timestamp to local co&nventions (Unix)], but my timestamps in the remote directory are always one hour different than the local timestamps. Is there another setting that I'm missing somewhere? I've tried each setting, then synchronized timestamps, and to no avail.

Thanks!
