Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0, mixed mode)
When running a JVM when an environment varilable TZ is not set, the property
user.timezone is not set at all and the default TimeZone ends up as GMT-08:00.
The variable TZ is not always set (for example, when using rlogin to login
to a machine), but even when it's not set, native utilities such as "date" or
Tcl can still display the correct timezone. It would be good if Java could
figure out the time zone in the same robust way as the native tools.
