This is really not important.

Just for the record: This is not a Mac issue. I am at the office and still 
waiting for my new IMac to be delivered. Meanwhile I am doing this on a 
Linux box with 3990 bogomips. Just tried again: In the planner enter

200m, TAB (immediate warning), click OK,
500min, TAB, about 10s nothing happens, then a redraw of the graph, then 
the warning appearing.

Fair enough.
