Within the last week, iCal has begun automatically changing the time zone of new events I enter via Calendar on my Google calendar to UTC. It does not do this for items entered on my iCal calendar.


I enter the date and time (Pacific Time)  and as soon as I add an invittee or click "Done" it changes the time zone to UTC.



  • iCal time zone support is on
  • Mac time zone is set automatically (and its correctly finding PDT)
  • gCal time zone is also set for Pacific


Calendar reads 11-1 pm...

Yes, one solution would be to not use Calendar. Barring that, what do you suggest?
