1.25 elapsed = 15 days 5 hours ?

Upon entering "1.25h" in the elapsed fields, FB reports "15 days 5 hours" when viewing the bug.

Also, the remaining field reports "-124 hours".  This is correct, as far as maths are concerned, but shouldn't remaining be zero ?  There is no time remaining for that case, so it shouldn't be negative, at least, in my opinion.

Thanks !

Is this with FB installed on your system?  I'm presuming you are in a country where "." is used as "," is used in the US.  In other words, "." is not the decimal separator, but "," is... so 1.25 h, is one hundred twenty-five hours which is 15 days and 5 hours.

Sorry for not saying so sooner.  I'm using the trial.

Just did antoher test.  The software expected a comma, as suggested.

It seems FB is using my browser's locale.

In that case, is there a way to tell FB that my locale should not be the one my browser is using ?

Thanks,
François

Yes, it is in the site settings, but you can't change that for the trial (because it would change it for everyone else).  In the installed version you can force a locale if you like.
