The timezone combobox in the Kst Settings dialog seems unnecessarily difficult to use. The vast majority of people will know what their local timezone offset from UTC is. It is much easier to type -8 than it is to scroll through a list of some 1500 entries looking for one that says America/Vancouver. At a minimum the user should be given the option to enter the information directly.
