Thanks for your quick reply. I was kinda sure I'm not making my self

OK. I got it now. So these are the locations that have been selected for
the world clock, right? 'cities' key was empty, because I haven't
selected any city.

The information I'm after is the setting that can be found under <right
click> + "set date and time" and there is this Timezone drop-down list
(at least in Ubuntu 8.04) and it's containing the timezone information
that was set during the installation (from the cute zooming world map
which has those blinking dots). Where is that information stored?
