timer server timeout

Following the control flow in the gen_server, sys, and timer modules I see
Calling sys:get_status(timer_server) will "reset" the "after time" in the
loop function of gen_server. As the timer server uses that time to get a
timeout if no other messages are received, one can potentially cause timers
to never trigger.
Is this a known issue/feature?
