Bug Description

Binary package hint: gwibber

Ubuntu Release: 10.10
Gwibber version: 2.32.2-0ubuntu2

Shortly after a timeline update, apparently if an update is younger than one second, the time is not displayed correctly as "less than 1 second ago", but rather as "BUG:00:00:59:xx" (followed by "from <application>" as usual).

Probably a duplicate of bug #705674.

I see an inconsistency in the following code from (condensed):

  elif d.seconds < 3600 and d.seconds >= 60:
    # ...
  elif round(d.seconds) < 60:
    # ...
  else: return "BUG: %s" % str(d)

Note the different handling of d.seconds: it is rounded in one expression but not the other. But I'm not fluent in Python so I don't know if this is significant or not.

I concocted a small test program that mimics the logic in
def testit(v):
    if v >= 60:
        print ">= 60"
    elif round(v) < 60:
        print "< 60"
    else: print "err"



< 60
>= 60

This seems to confirm my hypothesis.

This patch removes the rounding in the last elif condition, to avoid an error when the seconds part is between 59.5 and 60.0.
