Bug in TZ with new daylight savings time

Running an MS Windows application from within cygwin fails because it believes the timezone is wrong.  Running from the Windows GUI and from DOS is fine.  This is a huge problem for my company as we need to be able to launch this tool from a perl script under cygwin and cannot.

I read: http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2007-08/msg00041.html

which says the problem has been fixed.  When is this fix going to be applied?  How can I work around it in the meantime?
