    Description

      We just noticed the calendar_get_view() is calculating dates using DAYSECS and HOURSECS for day, month and upcoming views. That can be a problem, specially for daylight savings, returning the wrong time.

      We need to review calendar_get_view() and maybe other places using those constants and change them to use our Time API.
