Changing the CLOCK TIMEZONE or the desktop timezone should not require a

It does in 12.1.

The problem here was that the applet had timezone and time change as same
privilege and not as split privileges.

timezone changes basically are allowable for users, but time
changes are "bad" as they void logfile integrity.

This is GNOME 3 specific and Vincent opened a upstream bug already to
split them again.
