Package: gnome-calendar
Version: 3.22.5-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When adding an event, if I set the time to some value "xx:xx"-"xx:xx", the calendar saves the event and everything looks fine. But if you open Evolution or the shell-calendar (the clock on the top panel in GNOME-shell) I see an incorrect time has been saved (for example, 04:30 saved for an event running from 10:00-11:30) while the date remains correct.
The only way to correct this problem is to open Evolution and correct the time in that event.

To reproduce this problem follow these steps:

1. Open gnome-calendar
2. Add an event
3. Uncheck "All Day" and set a time
4. Open Evolution or the shell-calendar (the clock on top panel)
5. Select the date of the said event--the event would have wrong time set.
For example, for an event "Sample" belonging to "Personal" calendar due 18 July 2017 from 10:00 to 11:30. The event would have 4:30 set as the time (both in Evolution and the shell-calendar, not gnome-calendar itself).

I'd like to add that I don't have Google-integration enabled or Evolution set-up with my email (I only set it up to verify and correct this problem--it's still not set up with my mail).
