File Name and Time Date Question

I have done some more testing.  My rename command is PIC[date]{unique}

When I import from my camera DigiKam adds 1 hour to create the file 
name.  If I then select the group of pictures and select Rename it 
renames them correctly.

This looks like a bug to me, is there any other possible explanation or 
should I raise a bug report?
