On many platforms, regardless of what directory you're in, the above
command will read timezone files from a standard directory like
/usr/share/zoneinfo, not from the current directory.  Even a relative
path like ./EST5EDT won't work; you'll need to give the full path:

zdump -v /full/path/EST5EDT

I'd suggest doing a process trace (ktrace, strace, truss, etc.) to
check what timezone file zdump is reading.  And if your system
stores its local timezone in /etc/localtime, don't forget to check
that file as well -- otherwise you might discover that your system
uses the correct DST dates for every timezone except the one you're
in.
