I'm writing an app for Android OS, and I need to store some time values in the SQLite DB. I have been using android.text.format.Time to store the time values in the app, and then inserting the values as millis into the DB as REAL values. On the SDK emulator, everything works perfectly. On the sole phone I've had the opportunity to test my app (so far), my duration code doesn't work as expected. Some relevant code:

private static final String DATABASE_CREATE =
"create table " + DATABASE_TABLE + " ("
+ KEY_ROWID + " integer primary key autoincrement, "
+ KEY_START + " REAL, "
+ KEY_STOP + " REAL, "
+ KEY_DUR + " REAL );";
private SQLiteDatabase mDb;
ContentValues timerValues = new ContentValues();
int result = mDb.insert(DATABASE_TABLE, null, timerValues);
I pull this data from two separate functions with slightly different bits of code, both using Time.set(long millis), both giving incorrect results: The start and stop values come back correct, but the duration comes out 17 hours too large. Am I missing something about calculating durations or does this just seem like there's something "special" about this particular droid? I'll have another droid to test on Monday, but any ideas are appreciated.
