A changed meeting changes back to original time

I have a user who is on a PC and her supervisor is on a Mac.  She is set-up as his delegate.  When she makes a time change to a meeting on his calendar, the meeting changes.  When she looks at it a few minutes later, it is back in the original time viewed on her PC.  However, it is in the correct time when viewed from his Mac.  Her supervisor was put on the Mac just a week ago.  As you can imagine, this is very frustrating for her when planning his schedule.  Any help would be appreciated.

Are the time zones set properly on both systems?

Yes they are.  I ran into that situation a month ago so that was the first thing I checked.

So much for the easy solution.  Is it always an even hour difference or will it show differently if the time is only changed by ten minutes (or so)?  Does it show properly on the delegate system after the change?  Does it show properly on the delegate system if it is changed on the Mac?

It jumps back to the original time.  So if she moves it by 30 minutes it will jump back 30 minutes to the original time.  If she moves it 2 hours it jumps back 2 hours.  It's very strange.  

I've asked her to check to see what it does if she moves the meeting from his Mac.

Have you checked Windows Update and Office Update for any patches for the system?

No, but that's a good idea.  I'll take a look.

There is a Service Pack already for Outlook 2003.  This is one thing it says it fixes:

When a delegate creates a new meeting request on behalf of another user by selecting the users e-mail name from the AutoComplete list, and if that user has accepted or declined an earlier updated meeting request, the user's status for the updated meeting request is associated with the new meeting request that was created by the delegate.
