In a follow up to this - I'd like to get rid of the "time offset"
parameter in 3.0.21 as part of the cleanup. Here is the definition :

       time offset (G)
              This  parameter  is a setting in minutes to add to the normal GMT to local time conversion. This is useful if
              you are serving a lot of PCs that have incorrect daylight saving time handling.

I won't remove the parameter, just the effect it has in the
timezone code.

Please comment if you're using this parameter.
