Yes, you should see a drift or one hour offset on all of the clocks you 
configured in kicker and in other applications including the date command, too, 
if ntp or hardware clock is the issue, I think.

So far as I understand what you reported it's not clear as to where the problem 
is rooted which to know would be necessary to decide to whom to report to.

If the kicker clockapplet misses to update regularly without logging in/out, 
then it might be the source of the symptoms you observed, but then, I guess, 
clockapplet should also fail to update summer-/wintertime switches not only 
with one London clock but also the other Denver one you mentioned, shouldn't 
it?

Just tried: kicker clockapplet seems to immediately update correctly when you 
switch timezones…
