We've received separate, corroborating reports of a problem that cropped up recently where Mac OS X 10.3.x sets the time one hour ahead of the setting listed in the Date and Time pane of System Preferences.
MacFixIt reader Shlomit Heymann writes "The time on finder shows one hour ahead although on the preferences the time is correct. Selecting the option for view in window shows the time correctly, but on the finder it shows one hour ahead."
Daniel Sass writes "Haven?t seen this issue since OS 8.5, but even though daylight savings time is still a week away, my menu bar has kicked the hour ahead. The weird thing is that even when I verify that the clock is set correctly in the Date and Time Preferences, the menu clock (and system clock) is still one hour ahead. This is true whether or not I manually correct the time OR automatically use the network time."
