We have noticed that some quickstart jobs fail due to timeouts waiting
to connect to mariadb. On further investigation I've found that this
slowness is related to bootstrapping of TZINFO tables on initial startup
The workaround for this problem that I've chosen is to disable this
TZINFO generation on startup. Other options include using mariadb 10.4.7
(10.4.8 introduced the issue upstream), switching to mysql or percona,
or increasing out timeout to cover the longer startup time (probably
want to set the timeout around 5 minutes).
