[stunnel-users] In chrooted environment system times defaults to UTC

I noticed that when running stunnel from within the jail it logs its messages 
with syslong using UTC.

My question is how would one reconcile timezone of chrooted stunnel with a 
system one?

The issue illustrated:

	Aug 22 12:29:40 xerxes stunnel: LOG5[26569:3083679424]: stunnel 4.17 on 
	i686-pc-linux-gnu with OpenSSL 0.9.8h 28 May 2008
	Aug 22 12:29:40 xerxes stunnel: LOG5[26569:3083679424]: Threading:PTHREAD 
	Aug 22 12:29:40 xerxes stunnel: LOG5[26569:3083679424]: 500 clients allowed
	Aug 22 12:29:40 xerxes stunnel: LOG5[26570:3086773168]: 5101 connected from
	Aug 22 09:29:40 xerxes stunnel: LOG5[26570:3086773168]: VERIFY OK: 
	depth=0, /C=UA/ST=ARC/L=Simferopol/O=HOMELAB/CN=sega.localnet

xerxes' localtime is GMT+3 and sega's too, but stunnel runs on sega in 
chrooted environment and thus uses UTC (if it's not chrooted it reports 
localtime to syslog facility).

Any ideas?
