The tick' on the left is the event you are delaying (i.e. the one you

function, here both are equal but that may not be always the case.

In fact I retract my comment in that case. I thought you were playing
dirty tricks but in fact you were not. Sorry.

I don't think you need Calendar to provide what rtime provides.

No idea I have never used Lwt.
