This test fails on Cygwin.

evaluates to "1970-01-01 12:00:00 +1200 (NZST)".  Can you give me some
as to how to track this down?  I know nothing about how time zones work.

What does this shell command do?

TZ='NZST-12NZDT,M9.5.0,M4.1.0/3' date address@hidden +'%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S %z 

On a working system with GNU 'date', it should output this:

1970-01-01 13:00:00 +1300 (NZDT)

If it outputs "1970-01-01 12:00:00 +1200 (NZST)" on Cygwin, it's a bug
in Cygwin not in Emacs per se.

It does output "1970-01-01 12:00:00 +1200 (NZST)".

If so, perhaps we should just skip the
test on Cygwin (you might file a Cygwin bug report).

Let's not skip it yet.  I'll file a Cygwin bug report first.
