This isn't expected.  I got as far as finding out that the difference is
due to Spur answering 1 hour off in DateAndTime class>>localOffset.  That
itself could be as simple as DataAndTime's LocalTimeZone variable not being
flushed.  Because when I evaluate TimeZone default offset I get 0 as
expected.  Alas I'm mired in a performance regression right now so have no
time to look at this yet.

Could be because the Preferences valueOfFlag: #useLocale is false, which it
shouldn't be.
Could be because Locale startUp: isn't evaluated.
