Well it is. The problem is probably the backup of an old timezone
package that will generate a /usr/lib/zoneinfo/localtime file when
removed without purging.
This file is read by all libc5 programs before /etc/localtime.
removing it should make 822-date work again. I'll check for
this file in the next package and remove it, if present.
