Follow-up Comment #11, bug #53539 (project octave):

If there is a reentrant bug with calling setenv in a multi-threaded program,
then we will work around that as needed.

As it is, setenv is a function that is provided to the interpreter for user
functions to call, and I don't see that changing. And the Octave interpreter
itself is single-threaded.

I see no problem with setting TZ to UTC0 temporarily while strptime is called
and restoring it. If there is any problem, it is that the scope could be
reduced a bit so it's only around the strptime function.

The bigger problem is that the GUI is reacting to this change, which is giving
a wrong alert that files have been modified. That should be fixed regardless
of whether the datevec function is changed.
