Time zone problem in cygwin

I just built emacs 23 under cygwin from the cvs source of two days ago, and the time zone is off by 4 hours; display-time shows 1:30pm when the local time is 9:30am. This happens under both cygwin 1.5 and the (still experimental) cygwin 1.7. The problem does not occur in my build of emacs 22.3. I see in the archives that this problem was reported before:


Eli Zaretskii replied and asked for the value of (format-time-string "%Y-%m-%d %T %z"). The OP never responded, but the answer for me is the following: emacs 23 incorrectly reports 2009-02-05 13:35:36 -0100, whereas emacs 22.3 correctly gives 2009-02-05 09:36:13 -0500 a few seconds later. One further detail: emacs 23 gives the right time if I set TZ=America/New_York prior to starting emacs; but my understanding is that it's not supposed to be necessary to set TZ.
