Just for the record.

Unfortunately linux (at least the fedora flavor of it) has a bit or
wrong-think creeping in, in this regard.  The clock chip defaults to
local time and the kernel knows the TZ offfset and has some
compensation.  Uhg.

Obviously, for the sake of keeping sane, I've elected to have my
system (virtually) located in England.
