  Hi Rich,

  I think there is a localtime bug related to
but I've been unable to expose it in a reproducible way, and I
haven't had time to investigate more.
  But *once*, I got the following results :

$ TZ=CEST ./localtime-musl ; TZ=CEST ./localtime-glibc
Local:  06:13:34
Global: 06:13:34 TUU
Local:  06:13:34
Global: 06:13:34

$ TZ=:right/Europe/Paris ./localtime-musl ; TZ=:right/Europe/Paris ./localtime-glibc
Local:  08:14:10
Global: 06:14:10 TUU
Local:  08:13:45
Global: 06:13:45

  1. That "TUU" looks like some random string is added after the time format, there
seems to be a string length error.
  2. There's a 35 second discrepancy between the glibc and musl results in the
right/ case, which seems to indicate that musl prints UTC when it should print
TAI-10. (This is reproducible.) Does musl support the A. D. Olson "right/" timezones ?
