Why is the Report Start Time and Date in the calculation options not working properly?

I am running my model using the SWMM engine.  In the calculation options the simulation start date is set to 01/01/2000 at 12:00:00am.  The duration is 72 hours.  The report start time is 12:00:00am and the report start date is 1/2/2000.  After computing the scenario, if you graph any pipe the graph starts at zero hours instead of after 24 hours.  Also when color coding pipes for Velocity (Maximum Calculated), it is showing the first twenty-four hours.

Apply the latest cumulative patch for the software.

Once the patch is applied, if you graph a conduit, the graph is the correct data, but the hours at the bottom will show 0 - 48 hours, as this is how SWMM works.  However, our developers are looking into a way to correct this so that it displays the correct time that is being displayed.  Defect 246747 has been logged for this fix in the next release.
