That would make sense.  There's no way that Myth's time zone detection 
could ever return "EST/-5.0/no DST" unless someone set that (nonsense) 
value in a TZ environment variable.

However, PHP has its own time zone detection functionality--and I can't 
guarantee its behavior like I can Myth's time zone detection behavior.  :)
