Bug Description

rtm image on krillin, build 88

I'm in timzone UTC -4
If I have a missed call or sms that shows up in the indicator, it will sometimes incorrect be displayed as "Yesterday" <time> even though it happened today. This happens if the missed call is anytime after 8pm local time.

I believe it's because the determination for that label is using UTC time rather than converting to the local timezone. It should be changed to use local time zone.

consider making this critical as it can be quite confusing to the user to think they missed a call on the previous day when in fact it occurred today.
