"Human time" difference has time zone problems
|Reported by:||jhodgdon||Owned by:||westi|
As of  in 2.5 bleeding, the "human time difference" shown on Manage Posts, Manage Pages, and Media Library screens can be incorrect, depending on your time zone settings.
Here's how to reproduce this problem:
a) On the General Settings page, set your time zone to something that is different from the time zone on the server where your WordPress installation is running. For instance, set it to UTC + 11, and save the settings.
b) Click "Write" and write a new post. Save it (no need to publish).
c) Visit the Manage Posts screen, and click on Drafts to see your new post. When I did this, it said it was last modified 19 hours ago, although it was less than a minute ago.
This can also be seen on the Manage Pages screen and the Media Library screen, if you create a page or upload some media files.
I'll put my explanation of the reason for the bug in a separate comment, and then attempt to fix it.
