ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
Widnows XP

A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
I updated my JRE 1.6 with tzupdater-1.3.3-2007k, and the VET time zone shows GMT-4:15 instead of GMT -4:30.




REPRODUCIBILITY :
This bug can be reproduced always.

Comments
EVALUATION The GMT-04:15 output turned out to be an application problem. This CR remains as the time zone detection problem.
