SVN LastChangedDate timezone discrepancy

I have a configuration question about SVN 1.4.5.

I am calling Subversion through the NetBeans 6.0 interface, which calls
out to the separately downloaded and installed Subversion client.

I used both NetBeans 6.0 and Eclipse 3.3 to check out source code from
the same SVN repository into two different working directories.

Subversion showed the LastChangedDate in UTC under Eclipse, but showed
-0400 under NetBeans:

    *NetBeans 6.0 + SVN 1.4.5:*
        $LastChangedDate:: 2007-09-14 13:01:55 *-0400* (Fri, 14 Sep
2007) $:

    *Eclipse 3.3 + JavaSVN 1.0.4:*
        $LastChangedDate:: 2007-09-14 17:01:55 *+0000* (Fri, 14 Sep
2007) $:

Keeping the timestamp in UTC is preferable, so that developers in
different timezones can compare their working directories for "real"
changes, without getting a false positive that every file is different.

How can I modify NetBeans and/or SVN to show the timestamp in UTC?
