Description of problem:
dateconfig at the console and at the gui apply setting changes made 
to the timezone even if the 'cancel' button is pressed.

Oddly enough, this seems to only occur in the Japanese local

1.Install RHEL 3 and update to the latest version of redhat-date-

3. Exit dateconfig, execute the 'date' command to check the 
timezone.  It should be JST.
4. execute dateconfig, select a DIFFERENT timezone, then

6. at the bash prompt set the local to C (export LANG=C)
7. execute dateconfig again, select a new timezone, select cancel.  
Notice how this time the timezone DIDN'T change (ie: it operated 

Actual Results:  Setting timezone via redhat-config-date is broken in 
ja_JP locale, works in C locale.

Expected Results:  Should work the same way (ie: correctly) in both

mode toolsmay have some quirks not present there.
