Bug#37409: tzconfig does not work
There are two distinct problems:
- if /etc/timezone exists and the user says its contents are okay, tzselect
does not verify, as it should, that /etc/localtime point to the right
file. This is important, because after running tzselect one is left with
the feeling that everything is set up, while it may not be the case.
- if the timezone returned by tzselect is Rome/Italy, /etc/localtime is
left pointing to a nonexisting file. This may be true of all european
countries and maybe others.
