What version are you running?

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Go to Settings > General
2. Change the Time Zone to US/Central
3. Click Save at bottom of screen

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I would expect the Time Zone field to reflect the update. Instead it holds the original value, 
US/Pacific. In addition if I refresh the page it sometimes says US/Pacific and sometimes says 
US/Central. This switching back and forth between values also occurs with the Enable 
Registration at the bottom of the Settings > General. This problem can also be seen on Settings 
> E-Mail, where changes to the Mail Server, Username, and Password are sometimes updated 
and sometimes reflect old values.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
Mac OS X, Safari 4.03, FireFox 3.0.13

Please provide any additional information below.
I cleared caches etc. and the problem seems to persist. I am unsure if the data is being updated 
properly and not reflecting the new state or if the data is not being updated so it reflects the old
