Setting time and time zone altogether properly in Slack-current, KDE4

I don't know if this is a Bash problem, a slack problem, or a KDE problem, but I am having a tough time figuring out how to set my timezone.

tzselect has been set correctly, but when I type date, I get the correct date and time but it still tells me that my time zone is not set.

root@####:~# date
Mon Oct 13 13:26:36 Local time zone must be set--see zic manual page 2008
root@####:~# date --version
date (GNU coreutils) 6.12

The result is screwy date-time stamps on mail messages [gmail] and clocks that aren't right. Any ideas?

My *guess* would be to run /usr/sbin/timeconfig, but I could be way off here.
