Sub-flow still not playing right after being put on another machine

Ok, I have written this subflow.

It listens to MQTT on a couple of topics.

The idea is it receives a message telling it the frequency at which it functions.

Say 20 seconds.

It has an inbuilt setting to set it to 30 seconds if noting else is received.

I have deployed it on 2 machines and it works.
It is only working at 20 second.

The global is set to 20000.

I now put it on the main machine. I call it main, but at that part it is exactly the same as other machines. Just the code that adjusts the global is on this machine.

I had to add an extra function node to convert the message to a number as MQTT doesn't like sending numbers.

So the sub-flow code.

3 outputs.
A signal.
An output to drive an icon to indicate the flow is working
An output with the value (in seconds) of the rate.

global.SCAN_FREQUENCY is needed too!

It works on the other two. Tonight I put it on this machine.

The CPU load was pegging out and I noticed the SCAN_FREQUENCY is changing from 20000 to 30000.

I used this to make it 21 seconds, waited for it to propagate to all machines.
(The other two didn't mind)
Their global context changed from 20000 to 21000.
This machine's kept cycling.

Here is that code:

As all control is via MQTT why is only one machine getting the value changing from 20000 to 30000?

Your help would be appreciated.
Oh, but it is now 23:22 local. I'm off to bed.

Oh, this is the original code from which I made the sub-flow.
The trigger node is (was) modified to be the second output and the disabled text node at the bottom with a link beside it is the third output.

The "main" output is the function node called "enable".
