I tried the Phoenix time zone in attempt as a temporary fix to the QT
problem. However it sets my time an hour early. Which I guess is tolerable
until there's a patch for QT (which I hope is soon Coming). I tried to roll
back Qt and Qt-Mysql, but there were so many dependencies it didn't seem
like a wise choice.

If you mean Arizona, there is a special timezone file/rule for that area.
Make sure your timezone is set to "US/Arizona" and it will follow the
correct rules for the Arizona/Pheonix area. There is also a special
exception for East Indiana I think. If your timezone is set correctly,
the system will never have to be tweaked. Unless of course the
QT error people have mentioned bites you...
You can find all the rules in /usr/share/zoneinfo
(may vary slightly by distro).
