I think it's intentional that the length of time for the effect is variable and uncertain; I am not sure I would want to go so far as to display the remaining duration in the status line from the beginning. But it would be easy enough to expire the effect at the start of your turn if you have less remaining time on the effect than one player turn at current speed. Seems fair to me---occasionally you would rather have the extra fractional turn of protection, but more often you would rather have the knowledge.
