No it doesn't. What's happening...? Are you sure that you are using
_exactly_ the same timestamp I am using, with the time included in
addition to the date:

<2016-01-07 Thu 15:00-16:15>

So if you in this timestamp do "C-c ." followed by _nothing else_ than
"+1d", date switches to tomorrow?

A related thing: the documentation on timestamps says that "Org mode
will find whatever information is in there and derive anything you have
not specified from the default date and time. The default is usually the
current date and time, but when modifying an existing timestamp, or when
entering the second stamp of a range, it is taken from the stamp in the
buffer." So does this imply that "+1d" - if it would work - should
actually add one day to the given timestamp, not today?

Nope, doesn't work here without the space, using the timestamp I wrote
above. I am in GNU Emacs 24.5.1, running the latest Org from git repo.

Ok, but it is actually a secondary - or tertiary - issue.
