I would guess this has something to do with the transition to daylight
saving time, which happened at 0200 on 2011-03-27. This means that the
time you are specifying didn't ever exist (in your local time zone)
because 0200 became 0300.
Perhaps you can get what you want by specifying the time in UTC?
