I will fix this in FreeBSD; here is the problem for the benefit of
other TZ users...

There seems to be an error in /usr/src/share/zoneinfo/europe also in
2.0. Zone for Finland (Europe/Helsinki) ends up with line
                        2:00    M-Eur   EET%s
which should be
                        2:00    E-Eur   EET%s
instead. Zone EET (which I have been using) is correct.

Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Greece, Moldova, Romania,
Turkey, Ukraine (Europe/Kiev) look suspicious the same way but
I don't know about them.
