Vista Calendar time zone shift

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
Windows Vista, current updates
Nokia PC Suite 6.85.14.1
Phone is Nokia 6120c
Connected by USB
Vista is set to timezone (GMT+10:00) Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney
Phone is set to
Time Zone: Local time
Network operator time: Auto-update
Sync settings are
Contacts to Windows Contacts
Calendar to Windows Calendar
The problem:
A calendar item is entered on the phone. When it is synchronised to the computer, the appointment appears in Windows Calendar with a time 10 hours later.
A calendar item is entered on Windows Calendar. When it is synchronised to the phone, the phone shows it at the correct time.
After you synchronise a few times, a calendar appointment appears can appear multiple times with +10 hour, +20 hour etc.
What needs to be done to make the phone / Nokia PC Suite and Windows Calendar think they are using the same time zone, instead of shifting all phone calendar appointments by 10 hours when synchronising?

I have exactly the same problem. My N80 syncs OK with Mac OSX iCal but gets confused by Vista's calendar.
Changing the recurring items in Windows Calendar to have a time zone of "floating" seemed to help a little - they are now only 1 hour out instead of 10(or 11).
It seems that the experts in the northern hemisphere are not interested in this problem at this time of year. Maybe we should post the problem again in a few months.
