WORK AROUND

Please set the TZ environment variable for starting Java so that the Java runtime doesn't need to scan the data files under /usr/share/zoneinfo.

EVALUATION

A time zone patch for Linux seems to have changed the order of data files in /usr/share/zoneinfo and the platform time zone detection code picked up "posixrules". That hard link should be ingored.
