Anonymous ftp puts incorrect time in logfile (UTC instead of local)

Description of problem:
When an anonymous ftp connection is made (and again when the connection is
closed), the file /var/log/messages gets an entry with the time 4 hours
ahead of the correct time. (Since I'm on the East Coast US during Daylight
Savings Time, that means it's logging UTC instead of local time.) The file
/var/log/secure gets the correct time. This happens only for anonymous
ftp, not for ftp by a user.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect by ftp and enter user name "ftp".
Actual Results: The file /var/log/messages claims the connection time is 4
hours later than it actually was.
Expected Results: The correct time should have been entered.
My hardware clock is set to local time, rather than to UTC.
