#2203: GMT offset bug for date_sent in bp-messages-classes.php

Component:  Activity  |    Keywords:  messages, timezone, GMT
 I found that newly created messages were being displayed as if they had
 been sent at an incorrect time relative to my system timezone. In my case
 the local timezone is EDT; messages that were just sent appeared to have
 been sent 4 hours ago.

 The problem persists after updating to

 It appears the culprit was the MySQL function FROM_UNIXTIME returns a
 timestamp relative to the system timezone, but bp_core_time_since expects
 a timestamp relative to GMT.

 Attached is a patch that works on my instance of BuddyPress.
