I'm not sure what you mean by "this way". I wonder if you are meaning the explanation of a different bug I gave last week where I discovered that the semantic-idle timer seemed to be continously running. But my explanation then was of the buggy behaviour, I had attributed the problem to a different change.

From my understanding of the workaround that has been posted, it works by changing a call to cancel-timer to instead increase the timeout period to 1 hour. I think that means that cancel-timer is not actually cancelling the timer in the case where the timer is repeating due to Emacs still being idle. Or maybe cancel-timer was never supposed to deal with this case, and the author of semantic only thought it was working because idle-timer functions were only running once each time Emacs became idle anyway.
