Ubuntu: UTC gives wrong time?


When I do this:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata  

And I chose "none of the above" then "UTC", the time changes from Eastern to . . . GMT/London? UTC should be 4 hours ahead of me, not five. I had this working on my other computer, but on my new box (U15.04 Gnome Classic), I'm not getting UTC, instead I get UTC plus an extra hour, as if it's London's time (daylight savings). Or my computer thinks it's in Central Time?

Basically, I want my system to think it's running UTC time (Eastern + 4 hours) and display in the "Indicator Applet Complete" the UTC time with ISO-8601 format:

date +%Y-%m-%dT%T  


So, after following many bad leads, I finally found this:

> gsettings set com.canonical.indicator.datetime time-format 'custom'  


> gsettings set com.canonical.indicator.datetime custom-time-format '%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S'  

I'm sure


does the same thing.
