There's a tzdata package in the p-u-NEW queue which includes the change.
Unfortunately it was uploaded slightly too late to make it in to the
1952 dinstall but I'll check the diff this evening and get it marked for
acceptance in to p-u in the 0152.
Assuming everything goes according to plan (adding packages to
squeeze-updates hasn't actually been tested yet) I'm planning on pushing
the tzdata update in tomorrow morning.
