The bug report would be safe, but RH did have the fix out for Western 
Australia before DST was implemented two or threee weeks after the 
enabling legislation.

My guess is that "upstream" is on top of it any all the distros need to 
is keep an eye on that.

I "fixed" my powerbook by copying /etc/localtime from a nahant-clone system.

It takes instantly, but applications may need to be restarted. I alerted 
KDE by changing to a different timezone (I had chosen to monitor Greece 
for the Olympics) and back.
