This is a "test regression" caused by the JSR310 latest push into TL repository, in which
the timezone name handling is slightly different for those "special" timezone name such
as UTC, GMT and UT. The offending test case has not been updated accordingly (the test
case had the old workaround to map the UTC/GMT/UT back to JSR310 specific "Z" for the
golden data, which is no longer needed in the latest JSR310 spec/implementation), so
it fails on env/conf that has the TZ configured to UTC/GMT/UT, which is likely on some
server machines, like our JPRT solaris machines. The proposed change has been reviewed
and pushed into JSR310 repo already, guess it might be preferred to push this test case
only/simple fix into the TL to remove the test/nightly test failure.
