#3336: utc offset calculated wrong

 Boost seems to invert the posix time zone specs or even worse to calculate
 them completely wrong:



 "If preceded by a '-', the timezone shall be east of the Prime Meridian;
 otherwise, it shall be west (which may be indicated by an optional
 preceding '+' )."

 Using the following lines in a c++ program:

   time_zone_ptr myzone(new posix_time_zone(string("CET-
 1CEST,M3.5.0,M10.5.0/3"))); // e.g. Europe/Berlin
   cout << "Posix time string: " << myzone->to_posix_string() << endl;
   local_date_time mylocaltime(date(2009,8,11), time_duration(17,0,0),
 myzone, true);
   cout << "Wall clock: " << mylocaltime.local_time() << endl;
   cout << "Time in UTC: " << mylocaltime.utc_time() << endl;

 gives following output: [[BR]]
 Posix time string: CET-01CEST+01,M3.5.0/02:00,M10.5.0/03:00 [[BR]]
 Wall clock: 2009-Aug-11 17:00:00 [[BR]]
 Time in UTC: 2009-Aug-11 17:00:00 [[BR]]

 The system I used: Debian GNU/Linux squeeze/sid [[BR]]
 uname -a[[BR]]
 Linux fafner #1 SMP Mon Mar 16 17:39:15 CET 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

 output from date:[[BR]]
 date -d "2009-8-11 17:00 CEST "[[BR]]
 Di 11. Aug 17:00:00 CEST 2009[[BR]]
 date -d "2009-8-11 17:00 CEST " -u[[BR]]
 Di 11. Aug 15:00:00 UTC 2009

 Libraries (debian):

 The time zone spec ist taken from /usr/share/zoneinfo/CET on my system.
