This sounds to me like a suggestion to set the online help for the 
panel, i.e. the
button in the top right corner. But that's already included in the patch.
Or are you suggesting to put it somewhere else too?

The field does not display a value while displaying Default, though it 
explicitly states
'Seconds' after any value is set. I think it would become very clear to 
anybody then
what unit this setting represents.
Still, adding ' (s)' probably wouldn't kill me either. 😉

That's a very good suggestion, I will look into it.
