I have a strange bug with DateTime->modify('tomorrow') in PHP 5.3.
Code to reproduce:

$d = new DateTime('2013-02-05 06:33:33');
echo $d->format('Y-m-d H:i:s')."\n";

echo $d->format('Y-m-d H:i:s')."\n";

Current output on Windows with PHP 5.3.14:
2013-02-05 06:33:33
2013-02-06 00:00:00

Current output on Linux (Debian) with PHP 5.3.3-7+squeeze15:
2013-02-05 06:33:33
2013-02-06 06:33:33

I have asked the PHP internals mailinglist (see http://www.mail-archive.com/internals@lists.php.net/msg64587.html) and got this answer:

So it seems like the patch has not been integrated into Debian. It would be nice if this could be done.
