#169 syncing from ICS to device is off by timezone

SyncEngine (21)

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:





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
