Cron triggered two times at once and missed one time

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug My action is scheduled to run every hour:

But recently this action got run on the same hour twice and missed another run. You can see in the log below, that I expected job to run at 16:04:xx, but it got ran on 17:04:09

This is the start times of my action: Mon, 09 Mar 2020 15:04:09 GMT ( Mon, 09 Mar 2020 17:04:09 GMT ( Mon, 09 Mar 2020 17:04:08 GMT (

To Reproduce It seems like a one-off thing, I investigate every build fail and haven’t found anything like this.

Expected behavior It was expected for script to run every hour
