In Power Builder 12.5 how can I have multiple timers active in one framewindow?

Basically I have two timer calls in my framewindow's event timer for different purposes like this:
//timer1
Timer(60, this) //for doing something
if FileExists("file.htm") then
  //timer2
  Timer(0, this)
  //some additional code
end if

They seem to interfere. Is there some way they coexist? Or should I use the one minute timer for both tasks and hope for the best?

Maybe they still didn't fix the bug known from earlier PB versions: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Editors_IDEs/Q_23676204.html

To use one timer for both tasks is also good work around.

I ended separating those timers by making a timer object for timer1 and leaving timer2 as it was:

// w_frame.open
/* n_ini_timer (timer1) */
inv_ini_timer = create n_ini_timer
inv_ini_timer.Start(inv_ini_timer.of_get("timerFrequency"))
/************/
--------------------------------------------------------------------
// w_frame.timer
if FileExists("file.htm") then
  //timer2
  Timer(0, this)
  //some additional code
end if
--------------------------------------------------------------------
