I record MLB games as manual recordings.
On Thursday 7/24 I set the following:
Start: 11 PM
Duration 2 hours 10 minutes
If during the game, it appears it is running late, I will change the duration.
If I change the duration before midnight, there is no problem.
After midnight, I changed the duration to 2 hours 40 minutes (the game was running late)
However, when I go to watch the game, it has the duration on the scale as 26 hours 40 minutes.
If I go back into recording options, indeed it was changed from 2 hours 40 minutes to 26 hours 40 minutes.
Here is where I think the error is made by the receiver:
When I edit it after midnight, it still has the "When" as Today instead of "Yesterday"
Even though it actually started the day before, it is adding the 2 hours 40 minutes to the 11 PM on Friday instead of Thursday.

OK, I'll actually make this a question. Does Directv monitor these forums in order to know about
their software glitches? If not, how do I report this problem to Directv? (phone? email? etc.)

No, DirecTV does not monitor these forums.
If you go to dbstalk, they have a specific issues thread for each release and those are monitored.

You are creating a confused input to the DVR. Next game, locate the listing in the Guide bar. Press the red record button a single time. Later, while watching the recording press the "info" button, the select more info. Add the number of minutes you wish to add.

What is confusing about telling the receiver when to record something and for how long?
It had worked for years on my Directivo.
Your way, If I want to record a game on MLB Extra Innings channel, they have the games lasting 6 hours.
In my example above, I recorded 2 other programs the first hour of the game and it had it record my game starting 1 hour after the game started. The only thing that would get confused by a manual recording is a glitch in their software.
