Symptoms

Action Date while in the workflow information page of an item is off by 1 hour when comparing 2 users with 2 different time zones.

Open the System Properties Applet
In the System Timezone setting change the default to a specific time zone. In this example we changed it to (GMT-06:00) Chicago - Central Time (CT) The system is currently in the Central Time Zone.

Create two users in Weblogic. One in Central Time and one in Eastern Time.
Create a workflow with two steps. The First Step is approved by the user in Central Time and the Second Step if for the User in Eastern Time.

Check in a new document using the user in Central Time zone. Have that user approve the document.
Log in as the user in the Eastern Time zone. Go to the Workflow info link and look at the dates and times. Instead of one hour ahead the document is two hours ahead.
