I'm having trouble setting the time properly. The displayed clock is correct, but the timezones seem off. This means that all email I get is displayed as having arrived at strange times, and if I tell my clock to display another city's time, it gives me a wrong time, even if the city I chose is in my timezone. Example: I'm in Toronto, and it is the same time in Toronto as in Thunder Bay and New York. But if I select those timezones, I get a weird time (it is 3:04 on my clock, but for New York and Thunder Bay, the time is 11:04). Also, it keeps defaulting to the UTC timezone. What the heck is that? I'm in EDT, but it doesn't seem to save that setting...even on the command line it says UTC.
I'm not sure why it is doing this. I'm running slackware 10.0, with KDE 3.2.3, and using KDE to set the clock.
