This is because this turns events into "floating" events, meaning they  
occur at the same local time, regardless of timezone. I.e., an event  
created at 12:00 in America/New_York will still show 12:00 at

No. Timezone differences would not cause a loop. Plus, as already  
stated that previous error has been fixed.
