[BUG] Countdown unable to set 2h (suspect daylight-saving time change)

today (29.03.2015) I wanted to set a countdown in the Clock-App to 2h, but I am unable to do so. I can't set the 'hour selector' to 2h, because it transitions between 1h and 3h.

I suspect this widget is daylight-saving time dependant. Thats quite cool, but not suitable for a countdown.

Cheers, Pyro

Update (30.03.2015): Today it works again. So its a one or two times a year bug. I suspect the summer-winter time change could not have this issue, but maybe another, because there are two times on this day, with the same timestamp.

I can confirm this. The countdown timer shouldn't do this.

same problem with alarm-settings and new alarm. i had a alarm on 02:55, it chnaged automatically to 01:55 and now there is no possibility to reset it to 02:55.

I can confirm, can't add alarm for 3:00, clock jumps over it.

Yep, I can confirm this (sfos Oddly, the timer does set the required time despite what's shown in the timer setting screen.

Screen 1 - shows the hour set to the position of 1h, but the counter (top right) doesn't reflect this.

Screen 2 - shows the timer just set in image 1, (I was also able to remove/reset/edit the timer after setting it);

I also noticed that the time zone had changed to Helsinki/Finland but I live in the UK. After correcting the time zone I can set 1h exactly/displayed correctly.

Yes, today it works again. So its a 1 or 2 times a year bug.
