Just created this account so i could confirm above findings. "sudo apt-get --reinstall install tzdata-java"
fixed the problem for me too. If it doesn't work for you, I have also been reinstalling eclipse (Indigo) and both the openjdk6 and 7 before trying the above advice. Of course thats taking wild guesses here. My aptitude wrangling may well have nothing to do with anything. Just mentioned it to save others the trouble. I'd really like to know in how far reinstalling the timezone data package helped resolve this issue. I know, I am the curious kind. I fear little more than the idea of dying ignorant.
