set_timeout method of Notification instance doesn’t have any effect.

Description of problem:
When running the attached script the notification hides after roughly five seconds (which is default, right?). Using Ctrl-C (and obtained time measurement) I can clearly see that the script runs more than 5s and less than 12s even after the notifications hides.
From looking at gnome-shell/us/js/notificationDaemon.js it seems to me that the timeout parameter is on line 412 assigned to ndata object, but I cannot find anywhere in the rest of gnome-shell that this parameter would be used (the code of messageTray.js is so convoluted, that I am not sure I haven't lost it somewhere though).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run the attached script
notification hides after roughly 5s
it should hide exactly (more or less) after 12s
Upstream decided (in https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=701645) that this basically isn't a bug.
Closing as WONTFIX
