pause not working?

perhaps its just my game at the moment or something, but the pause button isnt really working.
in my game, i have these sign things that appear on the screen and fade away once you begin the level and the pause ends. but the longer you wait to press “start”, the more faded and faster the sign moves when you play. heres what it looked like while the game was under the effects of pause.

you can also play zetta’s level on GalacticoS for better reference.
if this is actually working fine and its just my computer’s fault, please tell me. I would really like this bug fixed soon.

Make the timer start only after it receives the message that pause had ended. (Message - mailbox behavior)

ill do that if the problem persists. thanks!
