Description of problem:
Installing Phoebe 2 freshly resulted in an error in "the Date and Time module"
of firstboot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
firstboot-1.0.3-5

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installed Phoebe 2 - HTTP, text, Workstation, timezone = Europe/Tallinn,
fixed IP address in a private network (192.168....), hostname = phoebe
2. Restarted the computer.
3. Clicked Forward at least once in the firstboot windows.
    

Actual Results:  A message window appeared with a title of "firstboot.py" and
"An error has occurred in the Date and Time module".  The window also contained
traceback messages.

After clicking "Okay" (or something like that) firstboot continued successfully.

Expected Results:  No message window.

Additional info:
