I know this happens to a lot of folks, but I've never experienced this
in 5.1 and 6.0.
I have "midnight-crossing" start windows and Full backup schedules set
for "last day of month". They all start at the opening of the window on
the afternoon of the last day, not at midnight that day (which would be
valid, but is part of the previous day's window).
Not sure what my installation is doing that others aren't, but I'm very
happy it works this way.
