don't change meeting times in Mobile 2003 when timezones change.

I travel extensively internationally. When I travel to another timezone and
change my PDA running Mobile 2003, it changes all existing appointments to
times to match the new timezone. Why? If I make an apointment in Japan for
Tuesday at 9 am, when I get to Japan I expect it to be there. Instead it has
changed by the number of hours between my regular timezone and Japan. If I
want it to be correct in Japan, then I have to compute the correct time in
Japan when I enter it (wrong until I change timezones), or then change it
when the PDA changes it. It seems very simeple- when I make an appointment
for a specific time- leave it alone or give me the options to not change
appointment times.
