Well... I haven't seen this one yet either, so....
Does anyone know where I can find a source of electronic definitions
(for a map, pref lat/lng) of the timezones ?
Thanks in advance.

I would be surprised if there was such a map, but if there is one,
please tell us about it!
Your might try calling the U.S. Naval Observatory, which keeps track of
international time zones.
The best electronic definition of time zones that I know if is Arthur
David Olson's package, which you can FTP from elsie.nci.nih.gov in
pub/tz92b.tar.Z. Sorry, it doesn't contain latitude/longitude, but it
does contain some indication of the magnitude of the problem.
