Delay timer does not work



After updating (HC3) to 5.140.17 the delay timer in a block scene does only works up to 9min. If you choose 10min or more nothing happens.


A creasy issue. I converted the Scene to lua to look what the system is doing. 


The same problem, more than 540000 is not possible.

Whats that ? can someone help me ?

What is your exact lua code you tested?

Perhaps there is some syntax error or misunderstanding.


Just to verify that the setTimeout function works as intended I wrote a simple scene:

And it provides this: 9min and 20secs later it executed.

Tested it with 10min and 10sec (610000) too:

Usually the standard setTimeout works for 28.4 days... 

Could it be that you have set the scene "Allow to restart a running scene:" to "yes" ? 

Then the triggering of a new instance of the scene will kill timers in the existing scene.
