Google Location services changes my time zone

Sorry if I missed this somewhere but I have been looking for several days.

The last 3 Roms that I have flashed on my Verizon TP2 have all been great with one exception. Within 1 minute of saying ok to google location services my time zone and time changes from GMT-8 (pacific) to GMT-5 (eastern). On initial install the time and zone is correct without me needing to set it. Changing the setting doesn't stick. I'm on the latest MightyROM released yesterday.

Completely clean and the system appears to get the correct time info from Verizon. Once location is turned on (weather, maps etc) it changes to Eastern time.

Maybe I'm not understanding how things are supposed to work because the weather and map apps do know my current location even with the incorrect time .

Any ideas? With several clean installs I can't be the only one seeing this behavior I hope.

Re: Google Location services changes my time zone

Did you guys install conflipper cities? If so, this was my problem with time zone changes. The time on my phone would change to "mountain time" and I was late for work once. Even after resetting the time back to normal, the phone would change time by itself again. Don't add new cities to your phone. Doesn't MM roms come with conflipper?
