The metadata for the recorded (as opposed to .dpatch-applied) patch are
in whatever timezone the user is in. So diff complains that
12:34:56 BST and
13:34:56 EST
are different. One side effect of convert is that all dates in patches
get their dates rewritten in the time-zone of the converter. I think
it's largely ok, so i've changed the test to ignore that. The cleanest
way would be to make all times UTC, but I haven't found an easy way to
do that.
