I am using
java version "1.4.2-p6"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2-p6-root_26_jan_2005_10_29, mixed
Is there a patch to fix this problem (*TimeZone.getDefault() isn't
picking the Host-System's TimeZone setting*)?

I looked into this when it was reported earlier, but unfortunately it
worked for me (and still does). I'll have to try a few different time
zone settings and try and get a feel for which ones break.

Please put a PR in, its too easy to lose track otherwise.
