Hi all,

We have a problem with Java (1.3) time being different than system time on an AIX box. Timezones seem to be correct. Java reports Central European Time and TZ environment variable is NFT-1DFT+01:00:00,M3.5.0/02:00:00,M10.5.0/03:00:00. But there is 3 hours difference !

> java CurrentTime

HOUR_OF_DAY: 12
MINUTE: 17
SECOND: 23
ZONE_OFFSET: 1
DST_OFFSET: 1
Time Zone: Central European Time

A quick Google around shows that this may be related to some time zone bugs reported for 1.3 and various zones, including the Euro Central time:
