If you go to a shared collection and click the calendar view, what
timezone is displayed? The timezone picker there sets your default
timezone for the whole application.
My guess is that this is an example of
Either ICU or our timezone detection code can't tell that your timezone
is normal US/Eastern time, it thinks you're using a timezone with no
daylight savings time, so it just calls the timezone GMT-5.
If my diagnosis is accurate, the fix is to explicitly set your timezone
to eastern time in the timezone picker.
But, this could be an entirely new bug, if so, let me know!
