Same timezone as mine, odd. History report is correct via the app, sadly I'm a work and cannot do any testing right now.
Edit: after testing schedules about 10 times today, it seems to have finally started itself on a scheduled time... I'll do more testing when I get home.
Edit2: I think I figured it out... I think the Roomba hasn't compensated for DST. Checking the time on it finally starting itself was at 14:30, whereas the schedule was for 13:30. So after getting home, I removed the roomba from the app and resynced it. Now it starts on schedule proper, set for 17:15 and that's when it started.
Note: Anyone noticing oddities in the roomba schedule, remove and readd your roomba to the app (I had to do it twice).
EDIT 3: WOOO! Got a call from iRobot (I contacted them about the potential issue) and discussed my findings and all, and I happened to slip a question about the 2.2.5-2 firmware and he confirmed it was for "upcoming features in the app" and I inquired further.... The CS rep sounded almost giddy as we spoke and confirmed the next app update includes.... wait for it...
Live Maps AND Push notifications!
He confirmed this several times to me and we just had a decent talk about the new features and some of our 'wanted' features that'd be cool. It was almost like talking to an excited engineering school boy. (I actually recorded the call for the lulz). He also mentioned the new app update is coming "Very soon" but couldn't give me specifics on when it'd drop. We all love robotics...
tl;dr: Excited CS rep confirmed maps and push notifications in next app update while discussing scheduling weirdness.
