Missing timezones in Sugar Control Panel

|Priority:||Unspecified by Maintainer||Milestone:||Unspecified by Release Team|
I just got my loan XO (to support our Vietnamese localization), and found I can't set my timezone in the Sugar Control Panel.
CST Australia (Adelaide) is UTC+0930, with Daylight Saving UTC+1030. The timezone list in the Sugar Control panel only has +0900 and +1000.
Interestingly, searching tickets here for "timezone" found bug #6 which reported the same problem in this tracker. The bug is labelled "Fixed", but when I registered with this tracker, I still found that the timezone list in Preferences only had UTC+0900 and UTC+1000. As far as I could see, there were no half-hour timezones, either here or in the Sugar Control Panel.
Why not use tzdata from Debian? I translate that, so I know it's up-to-date.
I hope I'm reporting this in the right place. I asked on #olpc-help.
Sorry, I can't input the Sugar version, because the XO's battery just died on me again. It's an XO-1, just sent by the OLPC contrib. team, so most likely pretty current.
I'll probably be back: we have critical input problems with Vietnamese on the XO. If I can't just edit the keymap (if I can find the dratted thing), I'll need to bother you again.
