There is definitely some wierdness going on with that code. It appears
that the value of the Adjusted Date DateEdit widget is used directly in
calculating the offset amount. Adjusting the difference: amount updates
the value of the DateEntry, which then redraws itself without the
seconds, because it does not have the DISPLAY_SECONDS flag set.

At least, I think that's what's happening, based on my brief look at
AdjustTimeDialog.cs and the GnomeDateEdit widget documentation.

When I start playing with the source a little more I will try and see if
this can be fixed by having the Adjusted Date display seconds, although
I assume this is currently disabled for aesthetic reasons.

Perhaps the code could be modified to dynamically set DISPLAY_SECONDS,
if the user enters a time or offset with seconds?

I think I'm learning something. Scary.
