No, the bug is still there. At least it was last time I checked.
It shouldn't be that hard to fix. If the user says YES, (their clock is set to
GMT), do nothing. If the user says NO, (their clock is not set to GMT), then change
the line in '/target/etc/default/rcS' that governs this aspect.
ie: change it from 'UTC=yes' to 'UTC=no'
Have a look at the description in /etc/default/rcS. It says:
# Set UTC=yes if your system clock is set to UTC (GMT), and UTC=no if not.
Hmmm, looking at the code in tzconfig.c, it's trying to do the right thing but it
doesn't work for dome reason :-(
