How to change timezone for HipChat message timestamp

I am running the Linux client of HipChat Version  I have set my profile online to let it know my current time zone, however, all the messages are timestamp in GMT.  How do I set the timestamp to the correct timezone?


I have tried closing and reopening all chat rooms, quitting the client and even restarting my computer.  I confirmed the correct timezone is set on my profile.
