I have added support for the new version 2 tzinfo files that are distributed
with your Gentoo system. The update is on SqueakSource at
Time: 31 May 2009, 1:50:19 pm
TimeZoneDatabase version 1.3
Add support for version 2 tzinfo files. A TimeZoneRuleSet created from a
version 2 tzinfo file has time values supplied from 64 bit data fields,
and has a posixTzEnvString instance variable intended for use in handling
instants after the last transition time stored in the tzinfo file (provided
here for informational purposes only).

Hopefully all of your system tzinfo files will load properly now. If you can
confirm this on your Gentoo system, I'd appreciate it.
Note, I have not yet updated the broken sunit tests discussed previously.
