Bug#763666: Date and time settings timezone wrong

Package: gnome-shell
Version: 3.16.3-1
Followup-For: Bug #763666

I am at DebConf15 and expected my system time to update automatically,
given that I have "Automatic Time and Date" setup activated in GNOME.

Surprisingly though, nothing much has changed automatically. Following
this bug report, I've purged ntpdate package, but nothing much changed.
My system time/date is still that of the originating timezone.

I do not want to change it manually. I'm hoping if there's any
additional information you need, I may be able to provide.
