Sorry, that was horribly unclear. What I meant to say is that the
failures show up when I use my local time zone setting, which is
currently 5 hours from UTC for me. This is the "LT" time zone that
is used by default in a fresh image. The failures go away when I
set the time zone to UTC (which is not the setting that I would
normally use).
