Well, the application works on win32 with TZ not set. But is then sets TZ to
GMT0 and spawns off a second process. When comparing a "magic string"
generated from some time value in both processes, things go astray.

Obvious the wine time related functions work different in the first process
with TZ not set and in the second process with TZ set to GMT0. I'll have to
work out...
