The timezone for my Wordpress installation was reset to Abidjan sometime during or after the upgrade to Wordpress 2.9. Verified this occurred on three independent Wordpress installations. I noticed when I scheduled a post to come up at 05:00 today and it showed up as already posted on my site at 01:00.
Also the process for selecting a timezone in the admin panel could use some serious work. I had to select about 10 cities before I found a one in the timezone I am located in (CST, Nashville, TN). Ended up selecting Knox, IN. Shouldn't have to hunt and guess...
Break up list by country, or GMT offset; not by continent. Also give a option to select by standard timezones for United States EST, CST, MST, PST...
