I thought my servers were all OK -- but I missed one.  I have a lowly  
ol' FC1 box, and there appears to be no tzdata update.  I did get one  
that someone had compiled, and now the tzdata is correct, but is  
there anyway short of a reboot to get the system to "look again" at  
the tzdata and change the clock?  I don't know what process might  
manage that...

Thanks for any insight,
