Summary0002106: Time increment increments do not work properly transitioning through 00:00:00
DescriptionThe program does not always increment the day properly when using the time increment feature (I've seen this going forwards and backwards)

I can start on 2019-03-29 23:59:55 and increment by the second, and it'll go from 2019-03-29 23:59:59 to 2019-03-29 00:00:00 to 2019-03-30 00:00:01

This does not occur if I manually enter a time of 00:00:00 and increment back and forth.

I noticed this when following a comet and was incrementing the time but it's a general issue not specific to the comets (but easiest to see that the map is showing something wrong)

Sometimes this works properly and I've stepped the time around when it works it keeps working ok, but I can usually get into the bad state by resetting the clock to system time using the check box then manually entering a time.

Can you try with the last beta version 4.1, because I cannot reproduce the issue but this remember me something I fixed last year.

Yes, I can repro it on 4.1.1.

I'm running 64 bit on Windows 10 1803 if that matters.

This was not easy to reproduce because it depend on rounding error with the floating point calculation.

This is fixed by:

This will be available in the next beta version on Monday.
