Or, it could be in /bin/date itself, part of coreutils.  I see this in the latest version’s NEWS file:

  date could crash or go into an infinite loop when parsing a malformed TZ="".
  [bug introduced with the --date='TZ="" ..' parsing feature in coreutils-5.3.0]

So, what’s the TZ setting on the 1.7.34 box?
