        Description

        SHORT SUMMARY: SEGV on solaris when referencing TZ variable
        INDICATORS: Crash seen if no $TZ variable on system (solaris only)
        COUNTER INDICATORS:
        TRIGGERS: No $TZ variable set
        KNOWN WORKAROUND: Mentioned in bugDB report.
        PRESENT SINCE: CR 7092679 fix.
        HOW TO VERIFY:
        NOTES FOR SE: Most likely due to one line where we don't make a null
        check when referencing TZ variable. Will confirm shortly.

        ive/java/util/TimeZone_md.c#649 looks suspicious.

        i.e
            648 #ifdef __solaris__
            649 if (strcmp(tz, "localtime") == 0) {
            650 tz = getSolarisDefaultZoneID();


        REGRESSION: yes - since 7092679
