IIRC in sarge this is part of libc6.

The command uname shows which kernel you use, but that has nothing to do
with the timezone you're in. To check if youŕe up to date run

	dpkg -l libc6

and in the column called Version you should find something like
2.3.2.ds1 ..., e.g. 2.3.2.ds1-22sarge4.

If the number you see there is below 2.3.2, you should upgrade your
system, if it is 2.3.2.ds1-22sarge1 or with a higher number at the end,
you're fine.
