Dates Handled Differently in XP Home?

Are there any documented or known differences in the way dates are 
handled on XP or XP Home vs. other Windows platforms and OS X?

My client has a customer who can't get our software to run correctly on 
his XP Home system. The code that fails checks a code we generate based 
on the day the code is supposed to expire to determine if the code is 
still valid. On Win2k Pro, OS X, and OS 9, the code he has been given 
works. On his XP Home system, it fails every time. If we give him a 
code that expires the next day, it works fine.

He swears the date/time is set right on his machine.
