I'm using opensync's sunbird plugin to sync from ICS files (created by sunbird) to SynCE.
Unfortunately the events are always off by the amount my timezone is off (I'm CET (GMT#+1) currently) and the event on the device is one hour too late when synced to it.
If I look into the IDB0 file which contains the events I find the following:

<vcal><Event><DateCreated><Content>20090211T102239Z</Content></DateCreated><LastModified><Content>20090211T102305Z</Content></LastModified><DateCalendarCreated><Content>20090211T102239Z</Content></DateCalendarCreated><Summary><Content>test-event</Content></Summary>

<DateStarted><Content>20090211T140000</Content><TimezoneID>Europe/Berlin</TimezoneID></DateStarted>

<DateEnd><Content>20090211T150000</Content><TimezoneID>Europe/Berlin</TimezoneID></DateEnd>

<Description><Content>testy</Content></Description></Event></vcal>

The event should be at 14:00 local time which is Europe/Berlin but in the device that shows up as 15:00.

    psteiner, please try the patch, nobody has told me if it works or not yet, which makes these things very hard to fix
