<i18n dev> Jordan (Asia/Amman) versus SimpleTimeZone

I was debugging the following bug report:
"TimeZone.getOffset() fails for some TZ"
The issue is caused because there is a start rule in the Asia/Amman
timezone that starts at the end of a day. SimpleTimeZone doesn't allow
that. I have a simple "fix" (attached), but I haven't fully tested it
yet, and don't know if there could be other problems with allowing a
rule to start on the last milisecond of a day.

I noticed there is a similar bug report here:
That is marked as "State 11-Closed, Verified, bug".
There is however very little information on how this was fixed.
Does anybody on this list know more?
