Interesting.  When I installed 8.1 I naturally set my local area (west 
coast US) for the time zone.  Is that what you refer to?  I also 
scrolled further up the test list and found this, which is apparently 
where the test is failing:

  tsformat  {
    ccaltst  {
     TestCalendar   {
!!    FAIL: ucal_getDefaultTimeZone() => U_BUFFER_OVERFLOW_ERROR
     } ---[1 ERRORS in /tsformat/ccaltst/TestCalendar]  (13ms)
