[Rd] POSIX <> character comparison is locale dependent

Hi Devs,

In my UTC+1 timezone the following code returns TRUE

     t <- as.POSIXct("1999-12-31 23:50:00", tz = "UTC")
     t > "2000-01-01"
     ## TRUE

For a person in US it would return FALSE.

The reason for this is that timezone of the "t" object is ignored in

Could this please be fixed? I am attaching a simple patch in case there is
