Comment (by Quozl):

 Workaround on Fedora 18 with olpc-os-builder;

 * set the 'timezone' in the '[base]' of the configuration file,

 Workaround on Fedora 18 post-build;

 * start Terminal,

 * identify the path to your timezone, e.g.
 find /usr/share/timezone | grep Eastern
 * change the system timezone,
 sudo ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/US/Eastern /etc/localtime
 * restart the desktop,
 sudo service olpc-dm restart
