Alas, it is indeed so, in fact the system is mounted local time in both
cases, however with different TZ setting, resulting in the file
Interestingly now, this is easily manipulated in GuixSD - my main
distro, via just prepending the correct TZ= value. Changing the TZ
results in changing the timestamps with which the card is mounted - as
should. However, the culprit now is Trisquel, which for some reason
mounts it in an arbitrary timezone and the TZ variable has no effect on
the timestamps with which the card is mounted - making backups
problematic in Trisquel.
