EndTime of activities not updated with DST - bug?

Hi,

 

While working on some issues in Australian time zone with ACT! 2010 Premium installed with AU locale, I noticed that if you have yearly recurring activities scheduled before 2007, the new instances don't have updated End Time with proper DST changes.

 

For example:

1. Create yearly recurring activity in October 2005 at 3:30 am until 3:40 am, no end date

2. Clear all instances from 2005 until 2009

3. Open instance for 2010 and you'll see:

 

    Start time: 4:30 am

    End time: 3:40 am

 

Doesn't make sense. See the images.

Looks like conversion is not done properly on  End time property.

Is this a bug?

 

Thanks.

You didn't post the image :-)

 

Is this only with AU?

Only with DST?

Only with international date formats?

Sorry for the image - I'm adding it now.

 

Yes, it looks like the problem is with AU. It works fine with North American time zones, but I didn't test with other international formats.
