Default glibc update broke time display

glibc-2.14.1-3 broke time display for me.

It displays UTC regardless of /etc/localtime or TZ environment variable.

Downgrading fixed it again.

# date
Sun Dec 18 09:35:36 UTC 2011
# ls -l /etc/localtime
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 35 Dec 1 20:02 /etc/localtime -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Brussels
# TZ=Europe/Brussels date
Sun Dec 18 09:35:41 Europe 2011
# TZ=CET date
Sun Dec 18 09:35:45 CET 2011
# TZ=foobar date
Sun Dec 18 09:35:49 foobar 2011
# pacman -S glibc
warning: downgrading package glibc (2.14.1-3 => 2.14.1-2)
[...]

Yeah, Allan broke it. He also knows about it but I don't think he could
reproduce it.

Have reproduced and fixed. Will be uploading a new package in the next
hour or so.
