Re: Python 2.4.1-1 time.altzone does not include DST offset

Python's time.altzone is equal to time.timezone, it should be time.timezone-3600 (for CEST)

$ python -c 'import time; time.tzset(); print time.ctime(), \
 time.daylight, time.timezone, time.altzone, time.tzname'
Sun May 14 13:46:55 2006 1 -3600 -3600 ('   ', '   ')

On Cygwin, time.altzone is always set equal to time.timezone.

The attached patch should fix this for most timezones.
The function already uses the same heuristics in the !__CYGWIN__ &&
