At a guess, the date is being converted into a timestamp with timezone
so you can add the interval to it. At another guess, the 1hr difference
is due to the effects of daylight-savings-time (or whatever it's called
in your locale).
I've got a feeling '45 days'==45*'24 hours' which, going over a DST
boundary isn't true for one day. Simplest solution would probably be to
add a few hours to the date before doing your calculations and then
casting back to a date.
