Timezone is applied twice
Submitted by tim..@..15.com

'timedatectl' gives me reasonable outputs:
- 'local time' is the correct local time
- 'universal time' is the correct UTC
- 'RTC' is the same as UTC
- 'time zone' is set to my city
- 'network time' 'NTP sync' and 'RTC in local TZ' are all net to no
In the properties menu of the clock in the panel I have entered my city in 'timezone'
Expected outcome: I would expect to see the correct local time on the clock in the panel. The clock should either query the "local time" from timedatectl and display that, or query the UTC from timedatectl and apply the timezone entered in its properties menu.
Outcome: The clock in the panel shows a time which seems to be UTC with the timezone difference applied twice. It displays the correct local time when nothing is entered as timezone in the properties menu of the clock.
This is counter-intuitive and confusing, as the timezone field of clock needs to stay empty on a system with correctly set timezone in timedatectl.
