#4805: mythfilldatabse does not interpret time offset correctly.

 Priority:  minor                 |   Milestone:  unknown
Component:  mythfilldatabase      |     Version:  0.20.2 
 Severity:  medium                |     Mlocked:  0      
 During my install of Fedora 8 on my MythTV box I chose to set the time
 zone as GMT-6 instead of choosing by Country/City (Chicago for CST) this
 causes 'date' to report the date and time with GMT-6 for the time zone
 instead of CST.

 I'm not sure how mythfilldatabase finds the time zone offset but changing
 to Chicago (CST) fixed the problem.

 With GMT-6 as the time offset the EPG would report the correct current
 time but all the data was offset by +12 hours (i.e. the correct program
 would show in the EPG data as 12 hours in the future).

 It is my assumption that mythfilldatabase somehow thought the offset
 should be +6 instead of -6 which would give the 12 hour difference.
