I thought I had reproduced the problem with zone in 21.2 on Windows
2000, and current CVS HEAD on GNU/Linux. But it turns out from
studying the code that my testing methodology was at fault.
My patience does not stretch to 3 minutes, so I first tried 20
seconds. When that worked I tried again with 180, and thought I was
seeing this bug. But in fact, calling zone-when-idle a second time
is a no-op. This was somewhat unexpected, I expected the timer
to be changed to the new value.
