Dear Maintainer,
	In postgresql-9.2 and forward the default timezone is no longer the system timezone but GMT instead.  The configuration file
still says the default is system time.


This is still in the postgresql.conf

timezone = '(defaults to server environment setting)'                                                                                                   
#timezone_abbreviations = 'Default'     # Select the set of available time zone                                                                          
					# abbreviations.  Currently, there are                                                                           
                                        #   Default                                                                                                      
                                        #   Australia                                                                                                    
                                        #   India

                                        # share/timezonesets/.
