Subject: [boost] [thrad] #3179 Sleep with local_time

Anthony this ticket have a simple solution.
Nest follows my contents
Replying to anonymous:
When calling sleep with an absolute time, it sleeps about two hours
instead of one second in code similar to the below example. ptime now =
second_clock::local_time(); this_thread::sleep( now + second(1) )
After a lot of headache I think that might is due to a missmatch with utc
and local time. Please make it possible to sleep until a "local time" (local
time zone) and write something about it in the documentations, I haven't
found anything special about which type of time should be used.

The this_thread::sleep prototype is
void sleep(TimeDuration const& rel_time);
The TimeDuration? you can pass as parameter must be one for which
system_time+TimeDuration? is defined.
You are right that this should be documented. BTW the interface for
void thread::sleep(system_time const& abs_time);
Anthony, to be coherent, shouldn't you add the absolute time interface on
the namespace this_thread? Waiting fro Boost.Chrono, what about adding
void sleep(system_time const& abs_time);
void sleep_until(system_time const& abs_time);
template <class TimeDuration>
void sleep_for(TimeDuration const& rel_time);
