I suspect the problem is in this function:

Function SecondsBetween(const ANow, AThen: TDateTime): Int64;

from the dateutil.inc rtl library. The trunc function is no garantee for
a correct result, and can err downwards. I think it should be rounding
function, or add 0.0005 seconds (1/2 milisecond). Of course this also
depends on the sign of the result.
