Qt frontend should either not show the timezone drop-down list (like gtk does not show ip).
Or it should take hints from geoip and select a more appropriate timezone instead of showing A-Z of those that are applicable in that location.

Unless I'm thinking of a different interface the Ubuntu GTK installer does show the timezone drop down, with the correct zone selected.

That would be my preference.
