Odd behavior during Daylight Saving Time switch

I'm assuming this has something to do with it just hitting 2 AM on the east coast. Threads aren't showing posts past 10:59 PM Pacific, and the reply I just made to a thread was visible for a moment, along with TDOT's double post and someone else commenting that a post wasn't showing up, but you hit F5 or click the thread and the last visible reply is listed as 10:59 PM or shortly before.

While refreshing the forum view, the names on Most Recent Post are updating, but no posts made in the past 13 minutes are there when you click the thread(s). Unsure if these posts are being lost into an abyss or if they'll reappear when the clock catches up ~45 minutes from now.

    The posts are showing up.

    ...in "chronological" order

    After I made another reply to the thread, all the missing posts are again visible. Then I refresh the page and they're gone.

    check the middle of the page. Like where the timestamps are showing times close to current local time.

    Ok, it looks like the posts whose post-fallback timestamps would have put them on page 76 are vanished and gone (unless you click Reply), but the posts whose post-fallback timestamps put them on the current page (page 77) are fine and now showing up as normal, inserted in with the posts from the old 10PM hour. So our thread just dropped all posts made between 10:00 PM and 10:11 PM.

    Seems like once a page fills out, it locks that page as having those 40 posts and it won't let any more in, but the active page doesn't have problems interpolating things.

    It looks like maybe posts that were "pushed" down past the end of the current page were eaten.

    Possibly.

    @Toddo - Looks like a page caching bug?

    This is a DST glitch. I'll have to travel back in time a couple of days to debug it.

    obviously a DST glitch, but I assume the normal topic/comment model is well tested in that regard, so I was assuming we saw breakage only due to our custom extensions of that model such as the Page caching.
