GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 769568
Modification date display incorrectly wraps calendar days (and is inconsistent with GTK2 and Nautilus)
Last modified: 2016-08-12 18:20:00 UTC
The GtkFileChooser widget for GTK 3.20.x wraps calendar days when calculating what to display for the file modification time. For example, a file created on Aug 4 at 22:00, when viewed on Aug 5 at 20:00, shows a modification time of "22:00" when it should logically show "Yesterday". Note this issue is akin to Nautilus bug 756402 (now fixed), though the Nautilus bug applied to a wider range of modification times.
In my environment, with the sample file referenced above, here is what is displayed:
GTK 2 2.24.30 "Yesterday at 22:00"
GTK 3 3.20.8 "22:00"
Nautilus 3.20.2 "Yesterday" (previous versions of Nautilus would also show "22:00" instead)
Thanks for your prompt attention to this. Could this please be pulled up into the 3.20 branch?
