Comment (by firefury):

 This is not a bug - Milliways is working as designed.  It cannot be
 expected to magically interpret some random syntax that the user made up -
 the correct syntax is "12d 34h 56m 78", etc., exactly the same as many
 standard unix commands.

 The only suggestion I have here is that the command be made to fail
 outright if it sees any characters in the input which it does not
