Description
If two instances of an rt.jar file live in the same pacakge on solaris - then the tzupdater script for updating package metadata becomes confused. Note that the updating of the timezone information (rt.jar file) is successful. pkgchk errors may exist after execution of tool - but this will not impact of java. See comments.

EVALUATION

modify the pkg_resolve.sh script to handle multiple instances of the rt.jar file that could be found within one package.

EVALUATION

A similar bug could appear in the 1.4+ version if multiple jre/lib/zi directories existed in the same package that was being updated. This is also fixed in 1.3.0 now.
