Java and timezone issues!

Somebody posted on comp.lang.java the other day about problems with
Ubuntu and Java timezones not reflecting daylight savings times
accurately. I don't want to rehash that discussion but the question was
asked here the other day, what update messes with the /etc/localtime
file. It is tzdata that came in today's updates. It rewrites the link
at /etc/localtime that points to /usr/share/zoneinfo/??? to be a file.
This stops Java from figuring out the timezone correctly.
