"Insert current time" overrides column format [closed]

In Calc, I have a column of time formatted as HH:MM. I use the (ctrl+shift+;) "insert current time" shortcut frequently. Unfortunately, every time I do this, it overrides the column format and inserts it as HH:MM:SS AM in the cell which is quite annoying. I can reset the whole column format, but I don't want to do this every single time I input a time.

Is there a way to change the default format of "insert current time"? Or make it such that the column format always overrides the format "insert current time" wants to use?

The problem does not occur with LO 3.4.6 on Linux or 3.5.2 on Windows. See if a new LO version helps.
