Default Installing Squeeze: Cannot choose time zone (two issues)

Issue One:
I prefer to install Linux distros in English then configure each user
for his own language. While installing Squeeze I do not have the
choice of a time zone for Israel, only US time zones. The installer
mentions that to display other time zones I must change language. This
is absurd.

Issue Two:
When I go back and choose the Hebrew language, I _still_ do not get an
option for an Israeli time zone. The time zones available have
switched from seven or eight US time zones to (translated from Hebrew)
"US", "Mexico", "Saint Peter and Miklon", and "Canada".

When I try to search for a relevant bug the Installer is not called
"Installer" nor anything else that I can imagine. So, does a bug or
workaround exist? Should I file one?

Thanks, George, or course I realise that I can reconfigure after the
install. The problem is not "how to install" but rather "how can this
situation be fixed". Surely there is reason to fix these bugs, no?

In fact, you can choose a time zone for Israel when install squeeze in English.
when i boot from CD, I choose "Advanced options"----->"Expert install",
I choose English used for the installation process. When set location, I choose
"other", then, choose" Asia" -------> "China" ( You can choose Israel
here). if you more
like GUI when install squeeze, "Graphical expert install" is a good choice.

Yes, I notice that. I live in Mexico and end up with CST so tzdata
points to Chicago and then I forget to change that to Mexico City, so
when the US changes to DST the system clock is suddenly wrong...

Both issues are weird :-?

You might find useful these two posts:

Changes for Squeeze in Debian Installer
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2010/01/msg00002.html

timezone in squeeze installer
http://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/2010/05/msg00001.html

There is a wiki page with additional information on d-i:

What appears impossible(?) is to select 'english us' and then a timezone
in Mexico. Or any combination of such. Once you select the former you
are stuck with the latter.

It's months since I've installed squeeze so I can't say for sure. Does
this happen with the expert installer? :-?

Binding a timezone to a location seems quite logic, but binding -
enforcing- a locale to specific timezone (or viceversa) seems to be
completely wrong, IMO. If it's reproducible with the latest installer I
think it's worth reporting.
