After the timers stop, do they start up again when you 'kill -s ALRM'
the Emacs process?

Maybe you could put a print statement in the handle_alarm_signal
function to confirm you get the signal. If you do, then perhaps start
debugging at the do_pending_atimers function.

If the problem is that you're not getting the signal, write a small
program that implements a simple timer using SIGALRM, run it
continuously, and see if it stops too under the same conditions.
