Subject: timezones: /etc/localtime no longer symlink after updates
X-Mailer: bug 3.1.0
Whenever I update the package timezones to a newer version, the symlink
/etc/localtime is replaced with the file it points to.
After running tzconfig it's a symlink again.
I think, the symlink should be kept between updates.
