Microsoft has issued a time zone data update KB933360:

August 2007 cumulative time zone update for Microsoft Windows operating systems

This includes new time zone "Montevideo Standard Time" for Windows. Java needs to be able to detect it.

EVALUATION There are two new time zones in the Windows update. - Montevideo Standard Time Mapped to America/Montevideo. - Armenian Standard Time Mapped to Asia/Yerevan. This change has obsoleted Caucasus Standard Time which is now defined as GMT+04:00.

EVALUATION Need to revise jre/lib/tzmappings.
