Description

The date and time calculations are not accurate when a Joomla global offset is applied. Anything but +0 appears to throw off the accuracy of the dates and times.

Issue is non-critical and most users should not notice it's affects. Typically only applies to editing an event. Next release will have new db date function removed as is too unreliable.

I suggest this belongs to my problem too, but is not yet solved:
on my j1.5.22, cb1.4, gj2.2 (I use 24 hours)
I enter in frontpage an event with date and time f.e: 19:00. After saving the time is one hour less => 18:00. So all my groupmembers ask me, when (because they know it would normally be at 19:00).
That's very bad and not usefull. How can I (we) change that quickly?? Thank you for your quick help!
It depends on Timezone in j15: this problem is when I have set UTC+1.
When I set Timezone UTC+3.3 and enter an event, then I have 15:30!
