I got this message in my inbox:

It says that 25 minutes ago my grace period for my bounty on this question started

But I still had 16 minutes left:

How is this possible?

    I'd rather get the notification before my grace period started than after. Those notifications are likely generated by a process that only runs "every so often" so it's not possible to notify you the exact moment it expires.
