I have never had a problem with the bios set to local time.  F15 boots 
with correct time, F14 and F13 boot with correct time.  Only rawhide 
demonstrates a problem.

There is an F15 bz that may also apply, but there seems to be some 
discussion about where the issue was.  Maybe a new bz just for rawhide 
is appropriate.
