   I noticed an error in the "zone" package, it seems that the argument to
   "zone-when-idle" is not in seconds but in 1/10ths of a second.
   Reproduction:
   try "M-x zone-when-idle 180"
   Sit back and don't touch anything, notice that it zones out after 18
   seconds, not 180 as the documentation suggests.

i don't have access to that platform to try to debug this.

   The "run-with-idle-timer" function does not exhibit this malfunction which
   suggests that the problem lies within the zone package itself.

this may be true but it's difficult to tell from the information given.

i suggest trying a more recent emacs.  if the problem persists, could you
write a small test case using run-with-idle-timer and describe its behavior
more precisely?
