Timezone is "Australia/Perth" which is right near the "Etc/GMT-8" timezone
code. Since Perth is GMT +8hrs I'm 8:00am when GMT time is 12:00am. Then if
you take a city in Australia like Sydney "Australia/Sydney", which is GMT +
10hrs in non-daylight savings time, it's near the "Etc/GMT-10" timezone
code. Basically, it looks like the positives and negatives are back to
It seems to be OK otherwise, i.e. times seem to reflect the correct time in
my timezone, and the server is in the USA.

What exact timezone are you choosing? Many of the timezones have different
aliases. Eventum uses the Pear Timezone library and I haven't seen the
problem in the past.
