Hi Stéphane.

The man pages for tzconfig mention that tzconfig changes /etc/timezone. 

cat /etc/timezone

return Europe/Paris, or does it say something else?  Might be a good
diagnostic tool to let you know if tzconfig is working as you expect.

A long shot: if


is an alias for

date -u,

then that would account for your problem.

Good luck!
