Wrong date in Beam

The underlying problem is that haiku's parsedate() function does not handle timezones other than GMT, which Beam relied upon.

Beam has been changed to circumvent this problem, but parsedate() needs to be improved, too.

I leave this bug open to remind me that I should improve parsedate() to cope with timezones.

Since hrev39864, parsedate() can cope with numerical and 3-letter timezones.
