Iptables "-m time" option doesn't update when the clock changes

Everything works fine - except that when the clocks change from winter time to summer time (in UK) - the rule keeps on working on the old time. The clock of this server (checked with "date") updates correctly. If I restart the server - the rule finally starts working on the correct time. Last year when this happened, I posted here and I was advised to change the hardware clock to UTC (from local time) - which I did. However, now that the clock just changed again from winter time to summer time - the user is complaining again that their Internet access slot is off by an hour.
Does anybody know why is this happening? -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe netfilter" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
