Description:
------------
        echo date(O)."\n";
        echo date(T);
returns "-0400 EDT" while bash returns
xingu ~ # date
Mon Mar 16 12:44:40 EST 2009 and
xingu ~ # date -u
Mon Mar 16 17:45:56 UTC 2009
and system is set to
CLOCK="UTC"

TIMEZONE="America/Panama"



Reproduce code:
---------------
echo date(O);
echo date(T);

Expected result:
----------------
return "-0500 EST" (same as system output)
N.B.: countries in the tropics have no need for daylight savings 
time.

Actual result:
--------------
"-0400 EDT"
