I reported in #1332 that at least on my computer, julian() does not work because
of the parsing of the default argument 'origin'.
It seems that it works, when I set the TZ environment variable.
I tried setting it to 'Europe/Berlin', 'MET' and 'MST'.
All works, but now Sys.time() reports the time one hour off, e.g system time is
15:10 (3:10 pm), and calling Sys.time() yields 
[1] "2003-01-28 14:10:25 Eur"    (here TZ=Europe/Berlin)

Does anybody know, what value TZ has to be, so that this works?
