customfield datetimepicker problem with summertime



We have a custom field as date time picker and an own written mailhandler.
The mailhandler looks for this custom field like this:
issueInputParameters.addCustomFieldValue(id, "31/Mar/15 8:13");


Since it changed to summer time, it writes now in this customfield "31/Mar/15 9:13" (+ 1 hour).  Are there some settings to fix this or do I have to program a workaround in the mailhandler?


Thank you in advance.

Maybe there is a problems with timezone. Look at this

Thank you for the hint with the timezone.

The problem was the timezone from the user which creates the issue. There it was set to an African timezone. After changing it to Europe Berlin, it works fine.
