Date issue with a Scrip

I’ve got two RT systems; 1 production and 1 development instance.
Each night I do a mysqldump of production and move it to development
so I can work the latest version and data. Production is at 3.6.7 and
Development is at 3.8.1 at the moment.

I have a scrip that parses when a ticket is submitted and based on the
date/time it will email a pager if it is off-hours. The scrip is
running fine in production and it’s been in use for over a year. But
for some reason my development instance is tripping on the date/time
checks.

My thinking at this point is that the scrip is evaluating GMT rather
than CST. I tried an RT::Logger and the hour variable is showing up
as 20 (8pm) when it’s should be 14 (2pm). This would confirm my
suspicion about GMT. So here is the question:

Did something change from 3.6.7 to 3.8.1 that would account for Scrips
being processed in GMT rather than the local timezone?

CR

I’m been plugging away on this but no solution as of yet. Any thoughts?
