I certainly was not suggesting putting the TZ definition in a system file:
it belongs in a personal file (e.g. ~/.profile in my case).  I was just
correcting a (possible) misstatement in my earlier post.

The question is: is there a personal file that can be used for this purpose,
no matter *how* one starts his or her desktop environment?  I suspect that
the answer is "no", but there might be a best practice: one or two or perhaps a
handful of possibilities for different methods of desktop initialization.
