[Bug 1302693] [NEW] DST switch induces wrong ordering of incoming mails by date

Public bug reported:

i usually keep my thunderbird open for weeks. this sunday the clock
switched by one hour due to the DST. i have noticed that suddenly all
new incoming mail has been gathering out of my view, so i had to scroll
down (i use reverse date ordering to keep new emails on top). after a
restart of thunderbird the problem seems to go away, so the confusion
must have come from the fact that the clock changed drastically during
the running of thunderbird...
