Well sure, then the task is rescheduled, so I expect it to fail in this

But in my version I had set DELAY_MS to 100 seconds.  The point of
extending the DELAY_MS is to prevent flaky failure on a slow machine.

Again, how do we know that this test hasn't found a Timer bug?

I still can't reproduce it.
