Thanks again for the report.

The original decision to check against timelastrec instead of timereceived was
both conscious and deliberate.  That doesn't necessarily mean that decision was

Unfortunately, I'm not finding my notes on exactly what those reasons were.

So I'm going with your patch as the case you have described is certainly more
"present".  If somebody remembers a good reason why timelastrec should be used
instead, we can re-evaluate.

STAGED for 4.2.8p9.
