Also, check this bug report.  It relates directly to /etc/localtime not 
when tzdata package is updated, which is most likely exactly the problem that
you have.  It seems Red Hat closed the issue with wontfix.  Mental note,
manually update /etc/localtime after tzdata package is updated.


I also want to take opportunity to apologize for that personal and totally off
topic comment at the end of my last reply that flared way too many responses.
