I should have also said to cd /etc/rcS.d; mv *hwclockfirst.sh
S05hwclockfirst.sh for people want to use TZ instead of setting the hardware
clock to UTC.

To make things clear: there are *two* possible work-arounds:
  a)  Set hardware clock to UTC: this avoids the issue completely
  b)  Band-aid the localtime support: this avoids all the _current_

If you can use (a), it is always better.  (b) is going to be fixed
eventually, the patch for util-linux is already in the bug report, but the
glibc one _will_ take time, because it requires a lot of *testing*.
