 DJPaul suggested posting this as a bug report. I can't get Messages to
 report "time ago" correctly without breaking the time reporting in the
 Forums. Out of the box, Forums are reporting times correctly ("Posted 2
 seconds ago") but Messages report incorrectly ("Posted 5 hours ago"). In
 an attempt to fix this, I tried using date_default_timezone_set(); which
 fixed Messages, but it "broke" Forums - the times now say "Posted sometime

 I Ensured my WP install is set to use the same timezone as my server, but
 this seemed to have no effect.

 In debugging, I sent a test Message that had a Sent Time of 2010-03-24
 08:22:03 when UTC time is 2010-03-24 13:22:52 (5 hour difference).
