Yes, if Astron says it should go, you have my sign-off too :-) - I am
not personally attached to that code.  It was an attempt to fix the
behavior when the button appears under the mouse just at the very moment
you try to click the slide to select that that annoyed some people too.

Maybe a short-term solution would be not to increase the the timer, but
actually decrease it?  Ie. let the buttons appear immediately when you
enter the slide in the slidesorter?  That would let the user to position
the mouse carefully to avoid clicking what she does not want to click.

All the best,
