Current version of installer does remount of all partitions after
timezone is chosen, AFAIR this worked fine for any combination of
timezone with localtime/UTC clock mode in BIOS.
I think a separate km-like script is needed for this though, for
example when install CD is used for rescue purposes when filesystems
are mounted in read-write mode.
Sadly I haven't provided an implementation of this yet :-(
Anyway, I'm very interesting in your bugreport (as I believed it was
fixed and haven't got any report for a long time) so *any* information
about steps you can get it reproduceable is usedul.
