#3178: Sleep with negative time
 Reporter: daniel | Owner: anthonyw

 Keywords: thread sleep timespan negative |

Comment(by viboes):

 I don't think the low level functions must check for these on the past
 wait, for me this should be undefined behavior (the documentation should
 state this for all the timeout based operation). The user can always
 define its own function that do the check. If people consider that this is
 useful we could add some safe timeout based functions.
