[tcpdump-workers] Should the tcpdump tests be run with TZ=GMT0, or should the AFS printer print time stamps in UTC?

Currently, the tcpdump tests for AFS fail if you're not in the time zone where the .out files were generated, because AFS time stamps are printed as local time rather than as UTC.

Should we run the tcpdump tests with TZ=GMT0 (at least on UN*X), so that all time stamps are interpreted as UTC?

Or should the AFS printer show time stamps as UTC rather than as local time in the time zone where tcpdump is being run?
