Thanks for the info and insight, Joe.

Well ... hmmm.  I think you're right.  For an unrelated reason, this morning, 
I stopped and restarted the gluster servers and NOW the logs indicate that the 
servers ARE using UTC.  So if they were not using it before, they must have 
been using the old version ..?  

The RPMs stated the new version number but I did not check the version of the 
process that was running.

We would have had to have upgraded and then NOT restarted the gluster daemons 
(or they failed to shut down properly and kept running).  The servers weren't 
rebooted, since they had uptimes of almost a year when I shut them down this 

Hmmm again.  Now all the clients are reporting UTC as well. ...!!?!
