Hello Thijs,

how do I check the timezonedb file? I think it should be ok because php
5.2.5-3 runs fine. But I will test the file anyway to be sure.

Is this timezone file new with 5.2.6-2? If yes and if it is located at a
new location php might not have the right to access it on our system. We
are preventing that php scripts can access everything on our servers.

I only tried with php5-cgi under Apache 2.2, so I cannot tell you if
php5-cli is doing the same thing. Do you have an example script for me to
test on command line?
