Timezone - Problem

It seems to me that RT converts date/time information to GMT before
storing it into the Mysql-database.
Is there a way to prevent this ?

Yes. This is the intended behaviour; store times without a timezone
offset, so when your local timezone changes (eg, daylight savings time),
the times in the database are still correct.

Not without significant RT-foo. (You don’t want to change this)

I found an other way :
I replaced the “now()”-function in the selectd statement with
’date -u +"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S"’
