[mythtv-users] Myth and Western Australia daylight saving time.

I found (in MythWebs config page) a time setting that is at +800 - I'll
fiddle with this later tonight and see if that fixes things.  It might
be a leftover from 0.18 where the auto timezone detection didnt always
work well.  0.20's configuration seems to have lost the manual settings
(or I cant find it in the Myth GUI)  This is an upgrade early
0.18->0.19->0.20 using gentoo's ~x86 packages so there is likely to be
some cruft like this.
