Dview bug in displaying results from short time periods


I was trying to simulate indoor conditions for two months (June and July), using the Date Range definitions on the Simulation Settings tab. The input is translated correctly into the resulting idf file, where the time period is accurately set to begin on 1 June and end on 31 July. The simulation run was successful, and the error file has no indication to any problem. Nevertheless, while trying to view the results on Dview, the results show as if the simulation was taken place during the first 61 days of the year, i.e. from 1 January to 2 March. The calculated values, though, do reflect the input weather conditions for June and July, not January and February.

It looks like a bug in the translation of the simulation period from OS to Dview. Is there a fix coming soon?
