Gnome 3.30: Time/Date Dispay is always UTC [Solved]

Question

Just upgraded to Gnome 3.30.  The time/date display in the middle of the top bar is always UTC.  My system clock is using local time America/Chicago for Central Standard Time.  Using the settings utility in gnome, it shows the correct time zone, but it says UTC America/Chicago.  No matter what I change it to, it will still show UTC time.

If I manually change the time with the gnome settings date / time control, it will change the system time to UTC, but the time/date will be correct.

How do I force gnome to NOT BE STUCK in UTC?

As a symlink?, no.  Forgot how I set it, but it is in the /etc/localtime file.  I remember the old way was to symlink it.  Then it change in funtoo some time ago (years?).  I'll have to browse the install guide to see if it is there.

CST is Central Standard Time in the U.S., which is set by America Chicago.

The Funtoo Install Guide says it should be a symlink.  I think I may have seen a emerge message mentioning to set the timezone with tzselect.  So I did.  LOL!

Changing the file to a symlink fixed the Time/Date Display.

Thanks!!!
