Hi Marc,

Thanks for your reply, I'll try that tomorrow at work. I've tried to set
both state and ends time but after the update the ends time was
unmodified but I'm glad to hear it should be possible to change that. 
I've noticed we should update also btw, it might be related although I
can't play around with that at will.
