Well, it may be that the timer should be in the XP part of the dialog, but
Martin has timer code in lists for a reason. Try this. Create a list
with the toolbar, open the lists dialog, select the list in the document,

This has to do with the whole idea of modeless dialogs, which I actually
like quite a lot.
