The one you tried on the CM11 is a different one than the one you shared with us earlier?
For CM11, it should be the same as stock 4.4.2.
Strange that it didn't work on my N4!

I finally found the root cause

it was Xposed framework !!
disabling it solved the issue

i will try to check for a workaround as i use too many modules

Yes I already updated the time zone fixer tool and the fixer reads the database version as 2014c.
I uninstalled the framework but left the xposed installer, I think that doesn't make a difference..

check if you have the tzdata file also under this path /data/misc/zoneinfo and change it

that solved the root user issue for me

Right now after replacing the file under /misc, I am still getting the times in what's app for example and the dialer log showing the old time (the non DST time)
Are you getting the same results ?

the time is completely correct now after replacing the file in both locations
Can you give me the permissions of both files and the output of the date command for both users?

Permissions :
RW for owner (root)
Read only for group and other

Here is the date command for both users

u0_a201@mako:/ $ date
Sat May 24 14:06:18 EEST 2014
u0_a201@mako:/ $ su
root@mako:/ # date
Sat May 24 14:06:29 EEST 2014
root@mako:/ #

Every thing look in order
Sorry I don't have a nexus so I can't guess what's the issue here
May be clear cache and dalivik and see?
Also look at the date and time settings
Is it set to automatic and if so does it chow cairo+3?
