Non-ASCII is a side issue, and treating it as the main issue is what
caused us to install an incorrect fix originally.

The original issue reported a number of years ago, was that the timezone
names for the Japanese locale on Windows are not RFC 822 compliant. So
we suppressed them in certain conditions, but in fact, the timezone
names are not RFC 822 compliant in most locales on Windows. Unless we
use a lookup table to figure out which names are RFC compliant and which
aren't, then I don't see a way we can leave them enabled.
