time bug

(Yes, yes, I know, put it in bugzilla - I'm too tired to hassle with creating an account on it to post a bug that way. Also this way I might find out if it's everyone or just me.)

iJournal isn't properly refreshing the current time when I start a new entry. The 'time' box gets filled in with the time of the last entry I made, and it's never updated. If I uncheck and recheck 'Use current time' it seems to grab the current time, but not actually show it in the time field. This has led to several mis-timed entries in my journal.

It seems to grab the time properly when I first launch it, but if I write an entry, close the window, and leave iJ running, then when I hit the dock icon later to summon a new window because I want to write an entry, it displays this behavior. And since I tend to leave programs open for days on end (desktop machine, it gets sent to sleep, not powered down), it's really really annoying, enough so that I'm switching to xJournal until it's fixed.

Also the .nib for the main window is broken - drag it out wider and the 'date' field grows, going over the 'time' label and under the 'time' field. I'd submit a fix I did but XCode doesn't seem to have properly remembered my CVS login details or something so I can't commit any changes... Set everything in the bottom row to be fixed-size and to be located relative to the right (that is, only horizontal spring shown in the 'size' panel of the info palette is on the right) and they won't overlap weirdly.

While the time shown's working fine for me here so far, I'm still with OS 10.2.8. The last error- the Time: label disappearing on dragging- I can duplicate. (Just attempting to answer a question parenthetical.)

Might be a Jaguar/Panther issue, then; I'm on Panther.

It's on Aqua, too - time box never refreshes for me, although it always grabs the correct time as long as I keep "Use Current Time" checked.

This was requested a while ago but nobody got around to implementing the fix since it is purely aesthetic. If use current time is selected, it will post the current time, no matter what the field actually says.

That is an annoying resizing problem, though. That is a definite bug.

Thanks for the info, in any case (you aren't the only one finding bugzilla annoying)

I find that even with it selected, it does not regularly use the proper time. For instance, on December 11, I have three entries I made over the course of the day (one is private) which are marked as being at 1:33am, even though one was made sometime in the evening, and one late at night.

awww come on and file this ;). Check that an xcode updat e didn't mess up your ssh settings for it. Rerun SSHPassKey to make it happy again.
