Bad Math (and No Publication) of Midnight-Hour Posts

I've begun a blog with 366 pre-built entries for the next year at .

I first tried setting the date and time to 00:00:00 (and GMT to 05:00:00). That didn't work and my entries weren't auto-published at midnight. Next I tried 00:01:00 (and 05:01:00). That doesn't work either.

Curiously, when you log in at, say, 9am, the post that should have been published at midnight will say it will be published in 9 hours. The math is backwards. The post that should go up at midnight that day properly says "in 15 hours."

I wrote more about this here:

I believe that the problem is the first 00, and I'll try 01:00:00 (and 06:00:00) soon, but there's still a bug.

P.S. WordPress 2.3.2 and 2.3.3 are affected by this bug. There's no choice for 2.3.3 in the popup.

I changed all of the times to 01:00:00 and 06:00:00 and the bug still appears. The Dashboard said "in 8 hours" this morning at 9am, and I again had to click "Save and Continue Editing" to get the scheduled entry to appear.

I'm going to check in the database tomorrow to see what, if anything, is changed by clicking just "Save and Continue" because I'm not editing anything.

Resolving as fixed due to the number of scheduling fixes since then.
