Time zone converter bug report

Time zone gurus,

I use the time zone database developed by this group in my time zone
converter (http://www.burbs.com/cgi-bin/tzconvert.pl).  I refer to it in
the help files for the converter as the "NIH database" but that isn't
really right.  How should I refer to this database?

I had a few bugs in the interface (I've addressed most of them), and
decided to put a "bug reporter" up.  

Through this I expect that from time to time I will receive reports like
this one, below.  I thought I'd forward them on to this list so that they
could either be explained or addressed.
