Comment(by jndevenish@…):

 I have some more wishful thinking, about automatically detecting these
 problems. When Cyberduck uploads to a server, it re-lists the affected
 directory afterwards. So if it uploaded timestamps, it could compare those
 timestamps when the directory is re-listed. If it finds a discrepancy
 between the uploaded timestamp and the listed timestamp, Cyberduck could
 alert the user to say how many hours and minutes of discrepancy exist,
 with a button to open the bookmark to adjust timezone settings. Maybe you
 could avoid alerting the user unnecessarily by storing a value of "time
 drift" in the bookmark and only alert the user if the time drift has
 increased since last time. From a user perspective, this would be a "win",
 because Cyberduck would be effectively explaining what's happening and
 showing me how to control it.
