I am having parental control issues since upgrading to 386.1_2 but I can see the cause - just don't know how to fix.

I live in Australia so I have Daylight Savings start/finish dates set accordingly. This allowed the system time to be set automatically to the correct time. Since upgrading to 386.1_2 the System time seems to ignore my Daylight Savings config and the time is out by one hour. I have tried changing the Daylight savings dates - Applying - then setting them back but the System time just seems to ignore them.

Has anyone else had this issue or is there a fix?

It is a bug in the TZ file for Australia. Here is the temporary workaround, post #9.
Quite a few posts and threads about this issue.
