Ya, but...  I am using that _very_ statement and get no E_WARNING.
The timezone illustrated _is_ valid.  IWFM.
I believe the PHP manual is 'awkwardly' written in this case.
Better would be if that *whole* sentence above was re-written beginning 
with "If the timezone is invalid, every call .... , and/or an 
E_WARNING ... " 
As written, it could be construed to mean an E_WARNING is _always_
generated for setting the TZ environment variable.
