I have a workflow that runs in loop (neverending) with about 10 tasks.

The problem is, that often my shared variables disappears and I get the error, that the variable does not excist.

I suspect that it happens when the variable has not been assigned a value for a specific amount of time, cause I think I can see a patteren that if often happens of the loop has taken a long time.

Is it possible to change the timeout setting of the shared variables?
