GMT is not the same as UTC, our help texts are talking crap

Description of problem:
"You can also select the <guilabel>System Clock uses UTC</guilabel>
"(UTC, also known as GMT, allows your system to properly handle daylight-"
"saving time.) Select this if your computer's hardware clock is set to
"instead of being set to your local time."
GMT (post 1925) is sort of the same as UT1 not UTC. In fact right now
UT1/GMT and UTC are about 30 seconds apart relative to the 1970 Unix
base time clock.
Changed the text and committed the change to CVS.
Jeremy - need you to build/integrate for inclusion in RHEL and Fedora.
Text now reads as:
You can also select the System Clock uses UTC option. (UTC, or
Coordinated Universal Time, allows your system to properly handle
daylight-saving time.) Select this if your computer's hardware clock
is set to UTC, instead of being set to your local time.
Setting as MODIFIED (it's fixed in CVS, I'll do another build halfway
Please remember to warn the translators
Change looks fine
