Are timeouts for scripting broken in v8?

Since updating to v8, our scripts instead of snoozing when the prompt times out, report back as "cancelled by user" despite us disabling the cancel option.

Anyone seen this or know what's up?  We had never seen this behavior before upgrading to v8.

I just tried using the timeout, all ok,  8.1 SMA with 8.1 agents. Check your KAgent.log on that user's workstation, it should log --user picked SNOOZE--

The log is in C:\ProgramData\Quest\KACE\user\
