[Pythonmac-SIG] Problem with iCal and appscript

HAS's appscript is a great achievement and very useful but I have
noticed a problem on my system with the demo program from his site:
the datetime object is shifted by -12 hours when added to iCal. The
demo puts the entry "First pants, then shoes" in the Calendar on the
16th at 1200 rather than on the 17th, (presumably at 0000).
I tried a few different configurations of dates and all were shifted by
I am in PDT (GMT +8) so it isn't a UTC issue, otherwise the shift would
be 8 not 12. I do use a 24-hour clock in my preferences and an
international time/date setting and thought that may be the problem.
But, setting the defaults didn't fix this. The Python datetime library
seems to work correctly. This is with iCal 1.5.2. Perhaps something
changed from version 1.0 that is interpreting the hour field
differently? Anybody have an idea?
