Timers run twice faster in Standard difficulty

When a scenario involves timers, they run twice faster than correct timing; this results in halved timers when player must “resist X minutes”, which is an advantage, but sometimes makes things harder, for example in Attila campaign, scenario “Un fidanzamento barbaro”, when the player must build a castle for Burgundy within 10 minutes (which become 5 minutes, because timer runs faster).

Same bug in last Gengis Khan scenario: timer before Subotai’s arrival runs twice faster. I’ve also tried to change speed to Slow in the options, nothing changes.

OK, I’ve found the solution: by pressing the minus key on the numeric keyboard, speed slows down. It’s very counterintuitive, I’d expect going to Options in game in order to change it.
