Bug Description

During a Wubi install (Hardy RC), clock-setup changes my clock. When I reboot in Windows, the time is shifter by -2.5 hours.

My timezone is EDT.

From user.log

Apr 23 13:58:52 ubuntu clock-setup: Time read from Hardware Clock: 2008/04/23 13:58:52
Apr 23 13:58:52 ubuntu clock-setup: Hw clock time : 2008/04/23 13:58:52 = 1208968132 seconds since 1969
Apr 23 13:58:52 ubuntu clock-setup: Time elapsed since reference time has been 0.960213 seconds.
Apr 23 13:58:52 ubuntu clock-setup: Delaying further to reach the next full second.
Apr 23 13:58:52 ubuntu clock-setup: Setting Hardware Clock to 11:28:52 = 1208959132 seconds since 1969

Might be wubi if the tz in the preseed is wrong.
JcMarco, can you pls post c:\ubuntu\install\custom-installation\preseed.cfg (before rebooting from a fresh wubi installer). And also %temp%\Wubi*.log

Please check the timezone there against yours.

It's definitely wrongly detecting St-John's.

All of those are from a fresh install. Attached is my timezone setting.
