Synopsis: If time zone is changed while apache is running, it doesn't reflect in access log
properly

State-Changed-From-To: open-closed
State-Changed-By: marc
State-Changed-When: Wed Nov 21 08:25:27 PST 2001
State-Changed-Why:
As you say, the Apache time funtions do not do much beyond calling your system time functions.
 We can not explain why they behave the way they do.  Perhaps they only cache the timezone
information after it has been used enough times to make it worthwhile.  Perhaps you are getting
tricked by the fact that the time library in each child process could have its own cache of
such things, so it may be on a per child process basis.

Regardless, changing the time zone on a running unix system is not something that it is reasonable
to expect to take effect immediately in running processes, and I see no reason why this is
a "bug" in Apache that should be fixed.
