I've found ~/.claws-mail/vcalendar/internal.ifb which contains:
 :Greenwich meridian time

These don't look good at all...  How do they get set?  What's the correct
format for the offsets?  :-040000 or :-000400 ? Other?

Tried changing :+000000 to :-040000 and bug still present.  Shut down CM
and values have been overridden back to originals, so this is not the
"fix"...  Ideas?
