GMT still being used as date after updating Config?

I have an issue with the date/time stamp on a ticket at generation. It
appears to still use GMT on the Database side (MySQL) even after I
configured RT_Config.pm to Eastern (US) Standard Time?

I clear Mason Data and rebooted Apache still records new tickets as
GMT instead of Eastern.

Any suggestions?

Version is 3.6.x (heavly modified) of RT + RTFM.

That’s correct. RT uses GMT internally so that when you set your local
timezone, the dates shift in the UI but aren’t wrong.

(When you come up to 3.8, your users will all be able to set their own
timezones independently, which is another important reason to keep
internal dates in something ‘standard’)
