I'll try to take look at this and file a bug as needed, since I'm
rapidly becoming familiar with the Ubuntu F-Spot package.

I believe that as long as the preferences are not set to store tags and
descriptions in the files, the timestamps will not be affected.

If F-Spot is set to store tags and descriptions in the files, it will
indeed shift all timestamps to try to put them in UTC. If you then
delete and re-import some photos, they will get shifted again, etc.
