My feeling was that if a program was too slow it would be running the timeouts continuously if the alternative of just calling it immediately was done. There was certainly no testing as to whether this was the correct solution or not.
But, to me at least, it sounds like it probably is.
The crux, like Bill said, is that is you are running so slowly that you miss the timeout, then trying to “fill in” all the missing timeouts is only going to make matters worse, I imagine...
