Upon further investigation, I've found that you're absolutely right.  
It appears that they (the WordPress team) has tried to fix the issue  
themselves with v. 2.2. The old patch used to change the following  
line (of version 2.1):

$post_date = mysql2date('Ymd\TH:i:s', $postdata['post_date']);

to this:

$post_date = mysql2date('Y-m-d H:i:s', $postdata['post_date']);
$post_date = get_gmt_from_date($post_date);
$post_date = str_replace('-', '', $post_date);
$post_date = str_replace(' ', 'T', $post_date);

However, in version 2.2, the line now looks like this:

$post_date = mysql2date('Ymd\TH:i:s', $postdata['post_date_gmt']);

I don't have access to an old copy of the database, so I don't know  
exactly what the difference is between the 'post-date' and 'post-date- 
gmt' values, but I'm guessing that it means that the conversion using  
the get_gmt_from_date function is no longer necessary.

Also, I've found that the blogging bundle Comments and Pings headers  
are broken in WordPress. If I try and edit a post that has Comments  
and Pings turned on, they will always be turned off whenever I commit  
the revised post, no matter what the headers say.

Sorry about all the bother. I just wanted to let you know that the  
blogging bundle is having issues with WordPress 2.2. Other than that,  
keep up the great work on the blogging bundle!
