Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.2.ds1-22sarge3

Sarge's /usr/sbin/tzconfig program does not allow the user to set the time 
zone to EST5; instead it behaves as if the user had selected EST5EDT.  Below 
is an example script showing this error.  This server is running

Thu Jun 22 12:01:15 EDT 2006

server-02:~# tzconfig
Your current time zone is set to US/East-Indiana

        3) US time zones             9) Indian Ocean

in which they are located. You should choose a city in your time zone.
