Fluid simulation ignoring Time Start and End

Short description of error

Fluid simulation aways starts at 0 seconds and aways end in the last frame, does not matter if you change the values under domain settings.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on the default startup or an attached .blend file (as simple as possible).

1- create a fluid simulation with inflow(tested here with inflow)
2- change start frame and end frame to something different from start and end frame from the scene itself.
3- Bake it

Event Timeline

Sebastian Parborg (zeddb) claimed this task.

The start and end time is not used to set when the simulation should start in the timeline.
It is used to determine when the baked data should be saved and the time scale:
https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/physics/fluid/types/domain.html

So for example with a start time of 10 seconds, the fluid sim will simulate 10 seconds before it save the results. Then it will map the start and end of the simulation to the available frames in the timeline.
