Time entry in H:M:S mysteriously switches to have a stopwatch character

I am seeing a bizarre behavior when I format a colum to have "Time HH:MM:SS" format. When I start to enter the time, say 5:10:20 when I get to the second colon it switches to 5🕙 and then ends up as 5🕙20 when I finish adding the seconds. This is totally repeatable, when the hours are 0 through 12. If the hours are 13 or greater the problem does not occur. My workaround is to put in a bogus HH value and then edit it to the correct value after the entry in complete, but that is not the proper for the time entry to work.
