Are you saying that Summer Time begins on April 1, not April 18, this

If so, it'd cause problems with more than *just* the Calendar Manager,
as the compiled time-zone files are used throughout the system.

Are there any other errors in the rules for Israel in the "asia" file? 
We (the Timezone Cabal) would like to have the data in all the files be
as correct as possible, so please send us any corrections you have....

(Timezone Caballeros: Should I post a followup and/or a note to
"comp.sys.sun.admin" and possibly also "comp.unix.bsd" and
"comp.unix.sys5.r4", requesting that *all* fixes to the timezone files
be sent to "tz at"?)
