5.x.x NFS archiving logic uses GMT???

Does anyone else have a Mars box running 5.x.x code and can they tell

me if the NFS archive raw messages are archived using GMT versus the

local timezone on the Mars box? You can tell by looking at the files

starting with "rm-" in the following directory:


The raw messages themselves have local timestamps, but they are zipped

up into files with filenames that utilize GMT. So in our case (GMT

-6), at 6PM localtime the Mars box creates a new directory for the

next day and starts saving raw events into that directory. We have an

external application that allows us to search based on date/time and

this breaks it (in previous versions, these file names reflected the local timezone)
