Thanks for replying and convincing me that I'm not completely out of my
mind (at least as regards this problem).

I too am running slink on another machine and had no problems with
that one.

And, yes, I agree glibc must be the underlying culprit.

So far as cron goes, I'm not sure where the fault lies, but I saw the
same problem.  My final resolution was to copy into /etc an EST5EDT file
that worked (see my reply to myself for the original post).  After that
I stopped and started cron, fetchmail running with -d, etc.  Now all is
well ... until tzconfig is run by an install upgrade!  I'm sure my box
is okay for the moment, but this manual intervention shouldn't be needed!
