Yes, I think you are right.

I also found years ago that there was a lot of these timers. And that was the reason for blinking "faster".

I had a thought that this might be related to w32. I saw several other bugs that also depended on how fast you did things. Some related to menus. Some related to frames.

On w32 you do not control the state of the system calls. I tried to make people add check of return values etc but I was not even able to get the checks I added into core Emacs. (I then decided it was a waste of time for me.)
