#9648 closed bug (no change required)

Probably wrong time zone in Polish locale.

I use Haiku in the English language version but with a Polish formatting. The clock is late by one hour. Once I clicked in the time synchronization and clock went back for another hour. So the clock is delayed by two hours. I noticed it when I booted to Windows.

In time settings, I set the time zone for Polish. The problem disappeared. After rebooting there appeared a window, asking if properly have switched to summer time :-).

I have set local time (Windows compatible).

The timezone preference is unrelated to the Locale setting. So, if you set the timezone and tell Haiku the system clock is set to local time, it should agree with Windows on the time of day and everything should be ok.

If you don't select a timezone, the default is GMT+0 (english / portuguese time), which can get a bit confusing if Windows doesn't agree.

Is this still an issue?

No change required: problem goes away when selecting a time zone, which can't always be guessed from the locale (several countries span multiple timezones). We can't do much better in "windows compatible" mode, and of course the "UNIX compatible" mode is better (and Windows can be set to work that way, which is the solution I would recommend).
