I can see it in this file, but cannot reproduce from scratch.

Is this file saved from official 2.93.4? (or BForArtists possibly?)
Steps to reproduce this in official 2.93.4 would be good to know.

Yes, I use only official Blender (2.93.4). I am not capable reproduce this problem too :( But it is problem with setting "View > Sync visible range" in the animation editor.

Please keep trying to find repro steps, will also try my best

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) claimed this task.

Turns out you can set show_locked_time on an Outliner space :)

You can turn it off again with something like the following (you may have to search areas until you find the Outliner, my repro file was a bit different):

C.screen.areas[1].spaces[0].show_locked_time = False

Not all 2D [non-animation] Editors are affected:

  • Image Editor is fine
  • Spreadsheet is fine
  • filebrowser is fine
  • AssetBrowser is fine
  • Info Editor is fine
  • Text Editor is fine
  • MovieClip Editor is fine
  • Properties Editor is bad
  • Outliner is bad
  • Preferences are bad
  • Python console is bad
  • all Node Editors are bad, Compositor, too

and of course some Editors should have it.

Will put up a patch that disables this for Editors that should not use it (and also prevent setting the value in the future).
