   (format-time-string "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S" (current-time) t)
     => "2009-11-15 06:14:49"

I know why I was into trouble, I passed a decoded time (via
decode-time) which gave weird results. I did not read the
docstring carefully...

   [That's in UTC -- see the function doc for tons and tons of options]

   Whatever a "PHP timestamp" may be, but it looks a lot like the number of
   seconds since the Epoch. You might give the function float-time a try.

I did not notice this function before. Thank you very much !
