Yes, thanks.  As I summarized (in greater detail) elsewhere on this
thread, Matplotlib was entirely innocent, and was correctly labeling
erroneous datetime objects.  My real problem was that datetime.datetime()
malfunctions when its tzinfo parameter is a timezone with daylight
saving time.  The practical solution is to use pytz.localize().
