PASE_TZ incorrectly set

NA does not set the clocks back until next weekend, however we ran in to a strange case today with out making any changes to our environments.

First, our Production servers are working fine. The problem only exists in our DEV/QAS systems. They are two independent 400's.

SAP is generating numerous short dumps, ZDATE_LARGE_TIME_DIFF and thinking our server is set to UTC. This is not the case we should be UTC minus 4 hours. Our QTIMZON is QN0400UTCS and our QUTCOFFSET is -04:00. These are the same on our Production box.

When I log in as QASOFR and do a WRKENVVAR I find PASE_TZ set to 'UTC:S4' not '<UTC-04x00S>4' which is set for PRD.

I can manually change the value for QAS and then the time is represented correctly (when I CALL QP2TERM and type DATE) however the value does not stay because it is set by R3INLPGM.

The other thing I find odd is on our production box I can CALL QP2TERM and type DATE to get the correct time as QSECOFR that does not have PASE_TZ set at all.

Thank you for any advice.
