[mythtv-users] timezone on FE and BE not the same (but they are!)

My newly crafted frontend machine, built on v0.25pre-3437-gaa38944 is

2011-10-05 02:39:55.516952 C  Time zone settings on the master backend
differ from those on this system.
2011-10-05 02:39:55.516975 N  Detected time zone settings:
    Master: Zone ID: 'America/Toronto', UTC Offset: '-14400', Current
Time: '2011-10-05T02:39:55'
     Local: Zone ID: 'Etc/UTC', UTC Offset: '-14400', Current Time:

Yet the /etc/localtime file on both machines is identical:

frontend# md5sum /etc/localtime
78936ec75f504c9df36e5454e9770c9b  /etc/localtime

backend# md5sum /etc/localtime
78936ec75f504c9df36e5454e9770c9b  /etc/localtime

Both of which match a different FE around here that's working just fine:

other_frontend# md5sum /etc/localtime
78936ec75f504c9df36e5454e9770c9b  /etc/localtime

All of which are the same as:

frontend# md5sum /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Toronto
78936ec75f504c9df36e5454e9770c9b  /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Toronto

So what the h-e-double-hockey-sticks is going on here with this new FE?
