Description:
------------
[Excerpt from bug 20382, for a separate problem that should be logged as a new bug]:

On the Win32 platform the date() format does not currently understand timezone names like "Asia/Dubai".

Example code:

<?php

putenv("TZ=Australia/Adelaide");
$tStamp = mktime (17, 17, 17, 1, 1, 1971);
print "tStamp=". date("l Y-m-d H:i:s T", $tStamp). "\n";
$strtotime_tstamp = strtotime("Monday", $tStamp);
print "result=".date("l Y-m-d H:i:s T", $strtotime_tstamp)."\n";
print "wanted=Monday            00:00:00\n\n";

putenv("TZ=Asia/Baku");
$tStamp = mktime (17, 17, 17, 1, 1, 1971);
print "tStamp=". date("l Y-m-d H:i:s T", $tStamp). "\n";
$strtotime_tstamp = strtotime("Monday", $tStamp);
print "result=".date("l Y-m-d H:i:s T", $strtotime_tstamp)."\n";
print "wanted=Monday            00:00:00\n\n";

putenv("TZ=Europe/Brussels");
$tStamp = mktime (17, 17, 17, 1, 1, 1971);
print "tStamp=". date("l Y-m-d H:i:s T", $tStamp). "\n";
$strtotime_tstamp = strtotime("Monday", $tStamp);
print "result=".date("l Y-m-d H:i:s T", $strtotime_tstamp)."\n";
print "wanted=Monday            00:00:00\n\n";

?>

And assigned to derick. :)

Please try using this CVS snapshot:

  http://snaps.php.net/php5-latest.tar.gz
 
For Windows:
 
  http://snaps.php.net/win32/php5-win32-latest.zip

This should work now (but wait until the next snapshot is generated).

Building of 5.1 CVS snapshots on Windows seems to have been stalled today, so I have been unable to verify fix - will do this on Monday instead.

Then give the feedback when you have it..
