Global Variable (timer) value changes when changing slides

I've created a timer with variables and layers that sits on the slide master, so that it will play persistently across all slides. When I jump from page to page, the textbox displaying the timer briefly shows a different number set, and then reverts to the correct time based on the variables. 

I'm curious as to what is causing this and if I can avoid it, or if I've made a simple mistake and just can't spot it.

Thanks for any help!

Hi Bill,

I had the same problem when I was using this technique which then made me swap over to using JavaScript to help.

I have changed the timer on your example file you sent across to work with JavaScript to see if that is any better for you. Let me know if you want any help with it.
