Thanks again.

PostgreSQL uses the timezone data from the so-called Olson library. See http://www.twinsun.com/tz/tz-link.htm. Looking at the upstream library, this is fixed in the most recent version (tzdata2012c), We will pick up that change in the next PostgreSQL minor release, ie. 9.0.8 for the 9.0 series.
