[wp-hackers] peculiar problem on setting GMT

Otto -- I think that WP stores all times for updates and such as GMT 
behind the scenes, by converting from the display time zone to GMT 
before storing the information.

So I don't think you'd get out of order issues you are worried about.

Then again, I am running out the door and didn't check the code, so I 
could be wrong.  Check the code to be sure, but I think this storage 
convention is what would also allow you to change the time zone for 
your blog and have everything magically display in the new time zone.
