#55310: Multi-date scheduled content blocks don't work as expected

 I have a page where I want each month to show a different block, so each
 block I've created has two dates, basically a start (visible) and stop
 (hidden) date, so that each month the content will change, but no
 intervention will be needed that whole time by an author. However, it
 doesn't seem to be working as expected for future dates. See screenshot
 which shows the settings for the April content block (visible on 4/1,
 hidden on 5/1), except that it's March and it's showing. I tried inverting
 the logic (hidden 4/1, visible 5/1) in case I have it backwards but that
 didn't change the behavior. Single dates work fine. I can have each block
 appear in its proper month, but I want the previous month's block to then
 disappear. IMO something is wrong here. Either my use of the block in this
 way is as intended and it's not working, OR, the intent of multiple dates
 is not clear and it needs to be made more clear.

 I may have miscategorized this ticket by choosing the wrong component, but
 wasn't sure which to use, please correct.
