Description Hoeft 2002-06-24 13:14:21 UTC
strange behaviour in time calculation:

time1     time2       result (time2 - time1)
22:00     23:59       1:59          ok
22:00     24:00       2:24          looks strange
Comment 1 Jody Goldberg 2002-06-24 15:39:10 UTC
The problem is that 22:00 is matching as h:mm and 24:00 is matching as m:ss

I'm not sure what the best solution would be.  This will take some thought.
Comment 2 Jon Kåre Hellan 2004-08-19 17:49:16 UTC
Gives the correct result now, at least in POSIX locale
Comment 3 Morten Welinder 2008-09-01 13:08:23 UTC
We seem to be behaving reasonably now, and probably have for years.  I don't
see anything that still needs fixing.

This problem has been fixed in our software repository. The fix will go into the next software release. Thank you for your bug report.
