Yes that did show up a difference, so I copied the GB file to localtime, 
rebooted to make absolutely sure that it wasn't working on the old setting, 
and hoped that the situation was cured.  Unfortunately it isn't.

This is driving me crazy.  Now I can make an appointment for 10a.m., and 
depending on which computer I use to read the korganizer file it may show up 
as 10a.m. or 11a.m., and there's no indication, of course, which computer 
originated the entry, so I can't tell which is the correct version.
