Hi Igor,

Thanks for the reply. However, I've confirmed that the
boost::asio::deadline_timer object still exists.

In examples I've found for repeating timers, that the timer is re-scheduled
within the handler itself. In my case, the timer is re-scheduled sometime after
the handler has run. I wonder if a timer cannot be re-used this way?
