Calendar items shifting 1 day after installing service pack and hotfix

Using ACT! by Sage 2010 Version 12.1.181.0, Hot Fix 1, Windows XP & Outlook.

 

I have just noticed (because I turned up on the wrong day!) that sometime since installing the Service Pack and Hotfix that a load of my appointments have jumped backwards 1 day. They are all events I have put in as "timeless" and "use banner".

 

QAnyone offer any advice on what steps to go through to stop it happening again? I also use HandHeld contact but have never had this happen before.

Every date field in an MSSQL database has a time component. When you schedule an activity as timeless, it actually has a hidden time of 12:00 AM. Given that we just went to daylight saving time, my guess is that the hidden time component caused the shift.

But, but, but... surely that would be a ridiculously daft thing to be able to happen... so that's probably it then.
