Description amesbury 1999-04-06 13:00:04 UTC
I've observed this in the SPARC version as well as the Intel
version.  When /etc/localtime points to
/usr/share/zoneinfo/SystemV/CST6CDT, the system fails to
handle Daylight Savings Time correctly.  However, when
/etc/localtime points to /usr/share/zoneinfo/CST6CDT, things
seem to work just fine.

I briefly looked for some other timezone-related bugs here,
but didn't see this particular one listed.  Anyway, there
you go.....

The one in /usr/share/zoneinfo/CST6CDT should be the one used as
default. The one in SystemV is there for backwards compatibility with
some utilities.The one in /usr/share/zoneinfo/CST6CDT should be the one used as
