One thing to keep in mind for schedule is that it's relative to
"network time", i.e., the packet timestamps in the trace. When you say
100s, it's not going to wait for 100s of wall clock time to pass, but
will trigger the event once the packet timestmaps have covered 100s.
When working offline from a trace, like in your case, that often feels
like "immediately" if the input is short. Could that be it?
