Semantics check... (Don't take offense.)  If the problem is with RedHat
5.x, and no ASclock, then ASclock is not referring to an *incorrect
timezone directory*, it is looking in the *right* place, it's just that
*RedHat* is broken and has it in the wrong place.  I don't much care for
the idea that RedHat (developers or their users) might be misleading
people to believe that their mistakes are the fault of other software, it
tends to lead one to think that being near Redmond is affecting them
adversely.  :(
