Bug Description

After shifting my time zone to a zone one hour forward, I set the alarm. At 23:36 and with the alarm set for 09:30 it said the alarm would sound in 8h 54m. Mathematics fail !

I didn't know if it would sound at 08:30 [after the elapsed time] or at 09:30 [the stated time]. Actually, it sounded at 09:30 so the time to elapse was the error.

The next day and following days the time elapsed was correct - but the alarm went off at 08:30, which was what I then set it to and what I had wanted from the start ...

I meant to say ... This happened before OTA 7. The bug may already have been fixed ?
