      Description

      Cannot create Atlantic Standard Time Zone, instead the timezone ID of AST creates Alaska Time Zone.

      Steps to reproduce:
      Compile and run the attached java code

      import java.util.TimeZone;

      public class tz {
          static final int millisInHour = 3600000;
          public static void main( String argv[] ) {

              TimeZone tz1 = TimeZone.getTimeZone( "AST" );
              if( tz1 == null ) {
                  System.out.println( "Time zone is null" );
              }
              else{
                  System.out.println( "Offset: " +
                                      tz1.getRawOffset()/ (double)millisInHour );
                  System.out.println( "Should be -4" );
              }
              
          }
      }
