The timer.el emulation package is pretty junky, I think.
In XEmacs the native itimer interface should be more reliable.
Thanks. In Gnus, there is nnheader-xmas-run-at-time which uses
start-itimer. So far it is good enough to Gnus even if it is
particular to the argument types, for instance:
(nnheader-xmas-run-at-time 1 nil 'ignore (current-time))
=> itimer "nnheader-run-at-time" signaled: (invalid-function 16341)
It should be improved in the future, probably.
