	Hmm - why did you su before running date ? It doesn't need root

	Anyway try this - exit sylpheed and then in a terminal (without
doing an su) run date and then in the same terminal window run sylpheed:

$ date
... date displayed
$ sylpheed
... sylpheed launches

and see if the dates match. If they do then it's likely that whatever
mechanism you normally use to launch sylpheed is setting the TZ environment
variable, or perhaps not picking it up.
