First of all, thank you for releaseing Emacs 22.2.92 pretest
and preparing Windows binary!

Unfortunately, Emacs on Windows (not including UNIX and Mac) have a
bug on format-time-string. (format-time-string "%Z") does not return

(let ((system-time-locale "C"))
  (format-time-string "%Z"))
-> ""

In Japanese environment, this should return "JST".

Some mailreaders on Emacs use this function to produce the Date:
field. (See the header of this message.) So, this bug has a big

I hope this bug will be fixed before Emacs 22.3 will be released.
