Yes, 'backzone' has many glitches. Fixes in 'git format-patch' format 
would be welcome.

Thanks for catching that. I installed the first attached patch.

While looking into that, I noticed glitches related to a 2006 hack 
installed to work around old zic issues that I think are now irrelevant 
(zic has changed quite a bit to handle 32- vs 64-bit output) so I 
installed the second attached patch as well.

Neither of these patches affect generated timestamps (e.g., zdump output 
is identical).
