Attached is a patch to fix a couple of errors in the current magic/Magdir/timezone file:

1) There's a typo - the line ">20    belong  1       \b, 1 std time flag" should be ">24    belong  1       \b, 1 std time flag", as the count of standard time flags is at an offset of 24 bytes; the previous and subsequent lines have the correct offset.

2) The field at an offset of 36 bytes is a count of local time types, not a count of abbreviation characters; the count of abbreviation characters is at an offset of 40 bytes.
