RT 3.8.1 Upgrade from RT 3.8.0 one small problem

The Request Tracker 3.8.1 upgrade from 3.8.0 went very well, only 1 small glitch. 

Although I did follow the various make testdeps and make fixdeps, I still ended up with a missing module. Once signed in, under Preferences->About Me, I blew it up:

Error during compilation of
/opt/rt3/share/html/Elements/SelectTimezone:
Can't locate object method "instance"
via package "DateTime::TimeZone::Africa::Abidjan"

It’s quite likely that this problem was my own fault. Maybe I missed something in my previous upgrade – which was a substantial step up. That is, I’m no 100% certain I looked at Preferences->About Me in 3.8.0! Anyway, a quick install of the mentioned modules did the trick:

cpan> install DateTime::TimeZone

And all is well!
