MSYS uses the GetTimeZoneInformation windows API.  Create a program to
determine what it returns.  You might create another to
SetTimeZoneInformation.


Ok, so here is my program: http://pastie.org/5089934. Surprisingly, in Windows 7 it says my timezone is "H".

Sorry, I forgot to break on TIME_ZONE_ID_DAYLIGHT, it is fixed here: http://pastie.org/5091609.

My country switched to DST right now, but the timezone returned by WIndows API is still this weird "H".
 

I have found timezones registry key and mine is not missing: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones\E. South America Standard Time, and it looks alright. So I have no idea what's happening here.

How about your machines, what does this program say for your timezones, and if you temporarily switch to Brasília (UTC-03:00) from control panel?
