Execution order of multiple setTimeout() functions with same interval

The Spec is here.

My interpretation of setTimeout step 8 in section 7.3 is that the execution order is supposed to be guaranteed.

However, I investigated this issue because when the window is minimized and then maximised in Chrome, I was finding that timeouts set in events coming from external sources (like websockets or webworkers) were being executed in the wrong order. I assume this is a browser bug and will hopefully be fixed soon.
