Oddness with AWS hosted IdP(s)

Hi Scott, I agree, it's out of date... but for a lot of us balancing out a
couple dozen other systems and OSs, unless there is a security issue,
3/17/2017 version of Jetty doesn't sound "far out of date" to many of us --
but that's on me, I paid that price.

To wrap up, I found this on the jetty bug list...

The problem looks to be that that RollOverFileOutputStream.toMidnight
function figures out what day it is in the local time zone, but then
computes the delay based on the timezone passed in. In this case, any time
between 17:00 and 24:00 on day x in PDT computes midnight as midnight at
the start of day x in GMT, and nextMidnight at midnight on day x+1 in GMT.
However, the current System.currentTimeMillis() time is already past
midnight on day x+1 in GMT as soon as the time is past 17:00 on day x.
Hence, the negative delay in midnight.toInstant().toEpochMilli() -

This may be the actual cause of our issues because we rebooted later in the
evening, something we've only done earlier in the day previously - and it
probably explains why it all miraculously worked after 1am.
