[ovs-discuss] idle_timeout not working correctly?

Running OVS 2.5.2

I used learn() to add a OVS flow with a idle_timeout=300. I continuously
send packets to trigger the learn action, so that the idle_age is always
below 1 or 2 seconds. However when the flow itself reaches 300 seconds
(duration=300s) it gets automatically deleted. It's as if idle_timeout is
being treated as hard_timeout.

Is this a known issue?
