I got very strange (IMHO) setuid diffs in my security reports today... Any
explanations appreciated:

xxxx.xxxx.xxx setuid diffs:

They are off by one hour, all right. I see possible cause: yesterday I've
noticed that my time was set to EST instead of EDT and changed my
timezone (one hour difference). But the question is: why those two files,
not the rest of them?? What do they have in common?
