I assumed that timezonemap.h was the source for the tests, in that the 
test runs through each of its entries and makes sure that they work. So 
if you update timezonemap.h to match the current tzdb then the tests 
should succeed again.

If I'm wrong and something else is testing Canada/East-Saskatchewan, 
then that other thing needs to be updated. As far as I know, 
Canada/East-Saskatchewan has not been in production use for many years; 
it's used only by programs that test tzdb exhaustively.

Thanks for the info; I installed the attached patch to tz-link.htm to 
point to it.
