No joy:

test test_time failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/home/admin/PythonCVS/dist/src/Lib/test/test_time.py", line 107, 
in test_tzset
     self.failUnless(time.tzname[1] == 'AEDT', str(time.tzname[1]))
   File "/home/admin/PythonCVS/dist/src/Lib/unittest.py", line 268, in 
     if not expr: raise self.failureException, msg
AssertionError: AEST

This was on a clean HEAD checkout, applying the patch (762934), run 
'autoreconf' in dist/src, followed by './configure --with-pydebug' and 
'make test'.
