My clock suddenly started showing time in UTC, apparently this started after an update. I reset my timezone from the Adjust Date and Time... settings and used dpkg-reconfigure tzdata but the time is still shown in UTC. The file /etc/localtime seems to contain the correct information (judging by the readable characters in it).

How do I tell the clock to use my timezone?
