    On DS: Using timerblocks to toggle Conveyor Sorters on and off works server side, but the glowing red/green arrows on the block do not change from the initial setting.

    To be honest, this and a couple other bugs (with voxels map) seem to crop up over time on the survival servers. It's like the server stops communicating all the information to the clients after a period of time.

    Anyways, to recreate on a dedicated server:

    Place a powered grid.
    Place a conveyor sorter on that grid
    Place 2 timerblocks on that grid. The first timerblock set to toggle the sorter on/off, and set it's timer to 5 seconds. The second timerblock set to trigger the first, start the first, and also start itself to repeat the sequence.

    Trigger the second block to start.

    Observe that the sorters' arrow does not change colour from what it was in the beginning. (If you set the sorters to drain something you can see that they work/stop appropriately in the inventory window even though the indicator is wrong)

    Timerblock seem to have a general problem on the client side. Pretty much anything the Timerblock does seems to be working according to the server, but the client sees conflicting information:

    Blocks toggled off appear on, but draw no power, and v.v., etc...
