That is indeed a bug. Weirdly I get a different profile than what you show in 
the picture. But when I enter 45 in the duration box a sensible profile

This is a consequence of the half-baked undo system. To edit the profile you 
now have to right click on the profile and select "edit profile". This will go 
into the remnants of the dive edit mode. Perhaps a button should appear for 
manually entered dives?

Do you think that editing the profile is the common use case? I would rather 
think that people simply enter date, depth and time, isn't it?

In any case, after adding a dive, the first field, "Date", should be selected. 
And depth / duration should probably come before the temperature fields...

Thanks for reporting these!
