Sleeping on a problem helped in this case.

Time current minutes < timer minutes + 10
ifTrue: [^#waiting].
timer := Time current.

I put that in an update method called by methods that change the data.  Not
guaranteed every 10 min depending on user behavior but close enough and
easier than defining a process.
