With the Space Quest games (particularly Space Quest 4) there are also timer related problems. However this brilliant person actually made changes to the scripting files for them which fixed the timer problems. These are available on http://www.spacequest.net.
I assume that using the same techniques it would be possible to fix the timer problems in the other games like QG4 too. Maybe its worth looking into.
