unable to define time zone

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-system-tools


The time-admin keeps crashing and also I am unable to define time zone.

I believe that this is causing also problems with my disks. During boot the system says that the superblock has been last time modified in the future. It is always 2 hours in the future. The Czech republic is GMT +2 so it is a time zone related problem. If I fix the disk with fsck and reboot system, the problem is inmediately back. I had to disable integrity checks during boot otherwise I would not be able to even boot. It would boot to read only state.

Please let me know if anything else is needed from me.

With regards,

Petr Hojzak.
