symbol conflicts in libtimezonemap1

Bug Description

In gnome-control-center 3.8 all built in panels are statically linked. When the indicator-datetime panel loads it is picking up the symbols from the gnome datetime panel rather than the ones in libtimezonemap1, causing g-c-c to segfault.

All public symbols in libtimezonemap1 need to renamed to avoid conflict. Likewise this might apply to any other g-c-c plugins that have code cut+paste from the built in gnome panels.
