Will update_stimulus_display delay a scheduled action?

This is sort of a converse of my last question (whether implicit updates pause execution; they don't): If I schedule an action, and the timer ends while execution is paused for an explicit display update, will the scheduled action be delayed?

I know that explicitly scheduling actions is frowned upon, but this is (hopefully) a temporary use case that will go away once the new NIDAQ analog output functionality is added.

    No. Each scheduled action runs in its own thread, which isn't blocked by pauses in the main execution thread (or other scheduled actions' threads).
