upcoming events widget does not properly support timezones

  1. The events of my google calender show up with a different time in my "upcoming events widget".

    try it out: my public google calendar (with a european timezone):
    https://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=sn8noq1u864n234gr8vs2qitb8%40group.calendar.google.com&ctz=Europe/Brussels

    the related shortcode that works out of the box in any wordpress.com page/article:
    shown at: http://jazzarlon.wordpress.com/prochains-concerts/

    [upcomingevents number="10" url="https://www.google.com/calendar/ical/sn8noq1u864n234gr8vs2qitb8%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics"]

    The event on Dec 16, 2012, starts at 4PM in the google calendar (which is correct) and 3PM in the wordpress upcoming events shortcode (and widget), which is wrong... and i guess is UTC instead of UTC+1.

    any idea how I can fix this?
    Thanks!
