Error description

  • The log4cxx library, as part of its initialization, ends up
    clearing the timezone environment variable "TZ".  This is used
    by later time calls to generate anything to do with local time.
    So local time is lost and this affects such things as chore
    start times adjusting for daylight savings time.
