In the default Jolla calendar app if you delete an event and then switch to a different day before the remorse action is triggered, the event will not be deleted.

There are other cases when the remorse timer doesn't complete even if it is uninterrupted, let's collect them here!

The remorse behavior has this inconsistency in other places too, perhaps we should try collecting them all here

@00prometheus Sure, feel free to add them in these comments or edit the question directly

I have the same experience with the Calendar remorse timer - this bug slows down how quickly one can use the Calendar app because one needs to wait all 5 seconds for an event to be deleted.

@Venemo I couldn't remember/reproduce the other cases, so I generalized your question a little hoping that others can find them. Hope you don't mind (there is a change history built in if you want to change back).

@00prometheus Thanks! No problem, it's a good idea to collect all the similar bugs here.

Found one more place: Email client will not delete the emails if you quit the client while the remorse timer is counting down.

One more, similar to Email: in Weather, a location will not be removed if the app is closed before the remorse is completed.

Isn't that a concept issue with the remorse timer? You have pending action, and that competes with the will to shutdown the app immediately. I never had complete confidence in remorse actions, so I always wait for them to complete or I check that it's ok. A system-wide setting to disable them would be welcome for me :)
