please define "wrong time"... if you run the command at noon your local time, what time stamp is in the message generated? what is your offset from UTC? what time stamp do you expect to see?
Well, "wrong time" is probably not correct.
The packet gets created with the "current time" without any TZUTC - so when it gets imported into Synchronet, its recorded as "the time" "UTC" - which for me is 10 hrs into the future.
If it had the TZUTC kludge of 1000, indicating that "the time" is 10hrs ahead of GMT, it would be the "correct time".
The same would be true, if the packet was (instantly) sent to London and imported, it would still show as 10hrs in the future.
... Winning isn't the end of the world.
