There are two things to be aware of.
1) There is a setting in iMovie/Preferences in the General Tab. If you select it, it will display time as hh:mm:ss:frames. If this setting is unchecked, iMovie will display time as hh:mm:ss:tenths of seconds.
If you are in frames, and doing a project at 30 frames per second, then 1.5 would be 1 second and 50 frames, which is the same as 2 seconds and 20 frames., so 1.5 would come out as 2:20.
2) When you add a transition, it needs frames from the clips before and after to make the transition.
For more on this, so this section of iMovie Help. See "Set how transitions overlap with adjacent clips".

Thanks! Solved. (hit the wrong button and can't change to "this solved my question" - can you tell me how to do that?)
I just can't keep up with you young people1

Seriously man.....this problem is ENORMOUSLY annoying. One minute something works, and then the very next minute the same thing doesn't work because yoiu did something inbetween. I just (after 4 hours of peeling my face off from anger) figured out that the Ken Burns effect also throws a wammy on the duration times as well. I really can't believe Apple is not solving this issue. It really renders the app almost unusable.
