Symptoms

Report generation start time of scheduled report is different to start time of job submitted to run the report.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Time zone on BIP server is EST (Melbourne VIC )
2. Changed Time zone of My Account dialog to [GMT+10:00] Canberra, Melbourne
3. Changed time zone for a specific scheduler (for eg: RecentLogins) to [GMT+10:00] Canberra, Melbourne

  (Scheduler - Timezone - [GMT+10:00] Canberra, Melbourne)

4. Scheduled the RecentLogins report to start report generation at 13 Nov 2013 4:11:00 PM AEST (attached screenshot)
5. Navigate to Open --> Report Jobs -- RecentLogins_test13nov.

  The expected report generation start time is 13 Nov 2013 4:11:00 PM AEST , however the job shows Nov 14, 2013 3:11:00 AM
