Timezone problems

I'm having trouble setting the timezone on my phone running ASU.  I set
the time/date via the command line (date -s) and that works fine.

Next, I link /etc/localtime:

  root at om-gta02:~# ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/New_York /etc/localtime

But date still show UTC time:

  root at om-gta02:~# date
  Sat Jul 26 18:29:37 UTC 2008

As does the phone toolbar and the clock application.  Trying "Set Time"
from Clock even shows "New York" as the current timezone.

Is this a known issue?
