IB status alert box delay time - Live vs Sim

  1. I was taking a friend through the TWS interface on his sim acct while connected using a notebook pc to my live acct when a notification came up from IB on his TWS (don't recall what it was - some exchange down for while). I noticed it took almost a full minute before I got the same message box on my live acct.

    Does anybody else have this happen on sim vs live? Isn't that backwards? Shouldn't a live acct get notification priority over a sim?
