"Move start back in time" does not show the "Adjust end times" dialog if it's used right after starting another task

Steps to reproduce:
1. Set-up: start timing for Task A, leave it running for several minutes
2. Right-click Timelime, select Task B. Timelime stops Task A and sets current time as Task A's end time. Timelime starts Task B, creates a new timing in the main window list.
3. Right-click Timelime, select "Move start back in time", select 10 minutes.
3a. Expected result: Timelime shows up the "There is an overlap" dialog with the button offering to adjust the end time of Task A
3b. Actual result: Timelime adjusts the start time of Task B to 10 minutes ago, but does NOT adjust the end time of Task A.

I noticed that if I leave Task B running for several minutes, then use the "Move start back in time", it correctly shows the "There is an overlap" dialog. The problem is that I often forget to switch to a new task and only realize that several minutes later: I would like to switch to another task and then immediately use "Move start back in time" to adjust the old task's end time. However, now I have to open Timelime's main window and manually adjust it in the Timings tab.

    Hi Julio,

    That’s a good find! Thank you for reporting.

    A fix will be available in the next update to Timelime for Mac.

    Let me know if you find any other bugs…
