I unfortunately must confirm this. On my slow Pentium 166 MHz (Win95) and sometimes also on my Celeron 500 MHz (Win98) I sometimes was also confronted with such timing problems even on small files. The same macro worked perfect on my Pentium 4 with 2 GHz (WinXP). I then used some tricks to help UE to synchronize.
A well known and already reported to IDM (with test files and a macro) problem is FindInFiles without parameter OutputWin (= results to edit window) where the next macro command is always executed before all results are pasted into the new edit window, the window has the focus and the cursor is at bottom of the results window - see How to link up all files under a folder?
On very large files with several MBs this timing problems are really problematic even on fast computers. The problem is that most users of UE or UES use only simply macros on small files with not so extremly old computers like I. So the number of users who are affected by the surely hard to find and fix timing problems is extremly low in comparison with the number of users who are satisfied with the macro support of UE. This gives the timing problems a very low priority in the list of bugs to fix, unfortunately.
