Patch 7067 for IRIX 6.5.29 updates libc with recent TimeZone changes (from patch info:
Bug #940809-DST fix for new 2007 law, including
northamerica and australasia TZ files
Bug #950520- northamerica and backward zic files
With this patch installed, "su" (installed as "gsu" by default?) segfaults if it is invoked as "su -". "su -s <shell>" is unaffected.
Running "su -", or "sudo su -" successfully changes UID to root, but then segfaults. The core file dumped is created in root's home directory.
