Code Sample, a copy-pastable example if possible

dt1 = pd.Timedelta(0)
dt2 = pd.Timedelta(28767471428571405)
df = pd.DataFrame({'dt': pd.Series([dt1, dt2])})
df_copy = df.copy()
s = pd.Series([dt1])

expected = df['dt'].iloc[1].value
df.loc[[True, False]] = s
result = df['dt'].iloc[1].value


Problem description

Setting a timedelta column by index causes it to be casted to double and back. Therefore, it will loss precision.

Expected Output


Output of pd.show_versions()


[paste the output of pd.show_versions() here below this line]
