As far as I know, the possibility of timezone mixture occurs in all
operating systems. What is different between systems is their behaviour
if TZ is not present in the environment. Some use wallclock time, some
use GMT, some use something different (one I tested used EST). There is
apparently no way to force some systems to use wallclock time without
knowing which timezone you actually want.
