Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-datetime

Steps to reproduce:

1. Start the time and date settings
2. Press the unlock button to change settings
3. Change the location from "Madrid" to "Valencia" (it appears in the available locations to choose from, as that's where I live, not in Madrid)
4. Press the button to lock the changes
5. Press the Close button to exit the dialog
6. Start the preferences dialog again
7. The location is "Madrid" again


* The location is "Valencia", as set by the user
* If that is a location that cannot be chosen, either do not show it on the list of available locations or show a warning

We determine the 'current location' from the current timezone, it would be difficult to have it set to a particular city within that timezone.

We could set a gsettings key that matched the current timezone with a name. Something like we do for the location areas. So we'd save "Europe/Madrid Valencia". If we loaded up the settings dialog, and the timezone matched, we'd use the preferred name.
