KDE clock does not match date(1) output

Can anyone tell me what the KDE clock/date/time subsystem uses that is
different from what the system time output by the date(1) command uses?

A couple months ago, my KDE clock became one hour slower than the system
time, which is correct. I was hoping that it somehow thought I was not
on daylight savings time and that it would be correct when we went off
DST but, alas, it "fell back" as it should have. When I go into "Configure
Time," it shows that I am on the same time as Los Angeles, which is true.

I didn't realize there was a difference. I actually just noticed about 2 days ago that my kde clock was off by a few minutes, so I executed the date command from Konsole and it corrected the kde clock.
