Not sure where this should be posted but here it goes......in order to get the correct time to show I have had to set the time as Azores Standards time (GMT -1), I have tried it with summer/DST selected/not selected and if I select Western European/GMT the timestamp is one hour fast......whats going on???.

My timezone is set as:
[UTC] Western European Time, Greenwich Mean Tim
Summer Time/DST in effect? No

And this correctly displays 11:13pm in the upper right of the screen. Try that.

This is correct, then when we change the time again you tick Yes to summer time.
