The workaround of adding "export TZ=UTC" in the /etc/init.d/northscale-server file seems to resolve this issue.

Erlang 14b03 is now out, and probably fixes this. Reassigning.

This will be fixed by upgrading Erlang

Assigning to Perry for release notes

Thanks Sean, but this is already in the release notes. Assigning it back to you to upgrade the Erlang code.

Resolving as duplicate since we have a story to upgrade Erlang anyway and having a separate bug to track the timezone issue just clutters Jira.
Comment by Perry Krug [ 07/Dec/10 ]
I respectfully disagree. Having a separate bug for this issue means we can verify that it is actually fixed and make the necessary customer notifications if necessary.

unable to reproduce this on 1.7. beta builds
I changed the vm's time zone to Jakart (wit) which is said to be broken on couchdb jira project
I was able to login to the UI without any problem and could see the logs.
