Next of recurring task
It happens for recurring tasks that due date shift to next day when I complete an occurrence of previous day.
Task's due date: every day @ 21.00
15-Oct-2013 @ 21.00 I miss to complete it
16-Oct-2013 @ 8.30 I complete the task
I expect task's due date is set to 16-Oct-2013 @ 21.00, but instead it is set to 17-Oct-2013 @ 21.00.

This is actually an expected behavior. Completing or postponing a task moves it to its next occurrence, that is - an "every day" task will be moved to the next day once you check it off.
This way, if you miss a task for multiple days, you don't have to complete it multiple times (even though you haven't completed them).
Unfortunately, our system ignores the time. It can handle tasks by day/date and sort them by time, but completion or postponing of a task will not take the time into account, if it's due today, completing it today moves it to tomorrow regardless of what time you've set up for it.
We may of course consider changing this in the future and rewrite our whole date handling system to include times, but for now the time works primarily an information for you when you've planned the task and a point of reference for relative reminders.
