Weird time glitch

If you constantly press 'skip' and 'continue' constantly on the timed practice, you receive over 2.3 million minutes' worth of time. What on earth has happened?

I tried that to see what would happen, and the clock just kept going down. Perhaps it has something to do with the internet connection; if you lose your internet in the middle of a lesson, the dictionary hints will stop working but it will mark everything correct, even total gibberish.

EDIT: I tried disconnecting the internet after starting the timed practice, and after 17 skipped lessons, it had given me 2:04. Then it panicked, and the window is frozen even after I reconnected to the internet. Interesting. When I refreshed it, it unsurprisingly sent me back to the beginning where I could decide whether I wanted timed or untimed practice.
