More generally, the bug occurs if you use 'zic -r @T' with a timezone
that lacks transitions before T. This means the truncated TZif file will
be larger than an untruncated TZif file would be, because the truncated
file needs to record the truncation timestamp in addition to all the
other stuff. I'll look into patching the bug.
