    Default Dome/Roof Control Issue (was: Scheduler failure during dome open)

    So I've now had this happen three times. The issue appears to be that if a weather unsafe event occurs during the period (say 1 minute) that it takes to open the observatory, Scheduler goes into a user intervention mode and reports a failure.

    Code:

    The problem only happens when sky goes unsafe during the opening event. If the dome completed the open and then it reported unsafe it all works correctly. So the issue is one of timing of the weather unsafe interrupting the dome command control before the correct reported status is allowed to report.
