Or it's operating as intended, giving you the feedback necessary to make the
informed decision (conflict resolution) that it couldn't make due to
limitations of the design.  Complaints like yours come up repeated from time
to time.  Ultimately the scheduler has been designed to make certain
decisions after which it relies on human intervention to resolve certain
cases such as this 3 way "tie".  What I would suggest is playing around with
priorities despite your desire not to.  Giving one of those programs a +1
priority may resolve your problem entirely without any negative side
