Using time in alerts

It appears using times for alerting is not working as I expect.

I have this rule:

        MAIL $UnixEmail  SERVICE=$UnixServices  REPEAT=15m RECOVERED 

        MAIL $UnixEmail SERVICE=$UnixServices REPEAT=60m RECOVERED 
        MAIL $UnixEmail SERVICE=$UnixServices  REPEAT=60m RECOVERED 

Based on these rules I would expect only one rule match at any time.

But when I run the command:
 /usr/local/hobbit/server/bin/bbcmd hobbitd_alert --test jimhost cpu

I receive a message saying it matched three times.

Shouldn't the time token apply to the rule?

Please advise,
