Bug#2959: date +%Z bug

Package: shellutils
Version: 1.12-5

When the timezone information is incorrectly set (for example after
having set it with tzconfig which incorrectly has a RULES=posix line),

	% date +%Z

locks the program (the disks starts making much noise but the program
has to be killed); what is strange is that

	% date '+%M %Z'

gives a correct result (i.e. with an empty zone field).

This is using the unstable 1.1 distribution, installed from scratch.
