Problems Observed When Publishing Posts With Changed Dates

Recently, we've seen reports, in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken about some oddities observed when publishing posts with changed dates.
I back dated a post, but it won't publish.
or
I published a post with a scheduled date, and it has already published.

What's going on here? If you're observing this problem, please try and help us diagnose its spread.

My Issue is the post shows scheduled for a future date (which I always check), but then never posts and the "scheduled" has been changed to "draft". I recently began using Blogger in Draft as my dashboard and since then the issue has been happening. I never had the problem in the regular dashboard.
