The Lab broke time again

Edit to add: this is fixed as of around 19:00 UTC.

It appears that the Lab broke time again. It's been a while since I last saw anything like this. Back in June 2012 we spent a week running on UTC (which was really nice, I wish the grid always ran on UTC) and, this time, they've done something that has caused the grid to not skip forward an hour to keep track with the US's switch to daylight saving.

This switch is always problematic on the grid as it is, especially if, like me, you're in the UK and your daylight saving switch doesn't happen for another couple of weeks. This now makes it confusing for everyone.

But it gets even better.

I noticed that the Raven Park and Z&A clocks were showing what would be the correct in-world time. It seems that, although the viewer time is wrong, in-world clocks that use llGetWallclock are correct! Here's a copy of the Raven Park clock, photographed when the viewer said it was 08:24:

So, not only will those in the US get their event times confused at the moment, any in-world clocks will further confuse matters by showing the correct time.

This is going to be a fun day.
