timezone issues make transferring/duplicating installs a hassle

Description (last modified by brettp)
We've seen it many times in the community, and it just bit me too. Spent way too long trying to figure out something I should have known would be a likely problem. I thought it wouldn't be because I was just transferring from a Pacific server to my localhost, but didn't realize my localhost is actually configured for the Europe/Berlin timezone according to date_default_timezone_get.
I think the dates used to generate the file structure need to be forced to be UTC-based, so they're always consistent no matter where you transfer the files to/from.
