Ahh. In that case...
The USB Mass Storage driver is all kernel, so it's the kernel grabbing the
data /and/ metadata (including the time) off the phone.
I assume the phone filesystems are probably FAT32/64? If so, see the
mount manpage under fat, for the tz= option. If you use fstab entries you
can of course put the option in the options field there.
If you're using hal or udisk based automounting... it should be
configurable in them, but hal's fdi configuration wasn't simple to work
with, to put it mildly, and while udisks config should hopefully be
somewhat more straightforward (even if it does bring in a lot of really
stupid-crazy deps like lvm), I've not really screwed with it at all yet,
so can't be of much help.
But given the above, it IS almost certainly the difference in timezone
handling between the two devices. Hopefully, that tz= option can fix it
