I too got daylight time to be recognized by changing experimentally from
the SystemV-style EST5EDT to America/New_York.  But that is not a solution
to the problem that EST5EDT seems broken in "frozen".  As for rebooting,
I reserve that for my Win95 machine ;-).  Honestly, I've seen only one
instance in 5 years of running Linux where I _had_ to reboot (the kernel
was very confused about swap, and was emitting some _very_ alarming
warning messages!).  It should be enough to '/etc/init.d/cron restart'.
