The only time I've seen Solaris do this is when the console message
is syslog'd - which FreeBSD also does.

The kernel works in UTC only and has only a very restricted ability
to translate between epoch seconds and a human-readable date/time
(it's currently only used to talk to the RTC).
Please excuse any delays as the result of my ISP's inability to implement
an MTA that is either RFC2821-compliant or matches their claimed behaviour.
