I'm the mystery user and this solves a real nagging edge case, see:

https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/problem-with-changing-time-zones.129458/
and
https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/problem-with-nstimezone.129457/

the problem is associated with using SetTimeZone in long running apps that run over a daylight saving change event - I'll leave you to read the above links but note that this issue has arisen for others in the forums - although I suspect some did not fully comprehend what was happening (my situation until fairly recently).

Again - many thanks Erel...
