Indeed, here, too.

 |I figured out, in order to have correct timezone for North Vietnam
 |with "tzselect -t zone", we need to apply this patch:
 |+++ b/asia
 |+Link Asia/Bangkok Asia/Hanoi         # North Vietnam
 |+++ b/zone.tab
 |-VN   +1045+10640     Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh
 |+VN   +2101+10551     Asia/Hanoi      Vietnam (north)
 |+VN   +1045+10640     Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh        Vietnam (south)

Surely a bug to be fixed, then!
