Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

During the installation, all Argentina timezones are portrayed with a different format as the rest, ie:

Argentina/Buenos_Aires
Argentina/Cordoba
etc

Instead, it should be showing:

Buenos_Aires
Cordoba
etc

This is sort of deliberate. The Argentinian timezones are three-level - "America/Argentina/Buenos_Aires", etc. The installer only strips off one level of categorisation. My feeling at the moment is this results in them being categorised better and thus easier to find, even if it looks a bit odd.

Rather than just stripping all timezones down to a single level, perhaps it would be better to deal with this kind of thing by increased structure in the list display instead.

Such 3rd level cities are now shown as "Argentina (Rio Gallegos)" or the like. If there is not the need for a 3rd level timezone it is just "Country" like "Argentina". A bit cleaner.
