You can find it at:


It is based on adding the following two entries in

                        -6:00   -       CST     2005 Apr 10 00:00
                        -6:00   Nic     C%sT

I have seen however problems with php too, as well as I suspect that
java maintains it's own timezoneinfo.

Also, I still have no further notice by now, when the timezone-change
will end.

Best Regards,


P.S.: please apologize for beeing terse and replying late.  I *will* try
to keep track of this issue and keep you informed.  Please identify to
