The solution is a little messy and fails in the rare event that an rsync run
straddles a DST change.

Fundamentally, glibc is assuming that the new root directory is that of a
POSIX-like system whose configuration it should observe, which is not the case.
 If what rsync is doing is considered a valid use case for chroot, there should
be a way to advise glibc so it does not try to reload configuration.
