This is a public version of bug #30135 which is set to private.
When reading the results of System.DateTime.UTCNow the value is equal to my
local timezone (HDT) instead of UTC. This does not occur on a device or with the Genymotion or Google Emulators.
## Steps to reproduce
1. Open the attached test project and run on a Xamarin Android Player simulator. (Tested Nexus 4 and 5, KitKat and Lollipop)
Expected result: Time value shown in the top two text views will be the same as the UTC time shown in the WebView.
Actual result: Local time value is shown in the top two text views, not UTC time.
