Yes. There is a five minute window on the "test_alert" comment detection. VizAlerts is designed to run every minute, so it you don't set it up that way, unexpected stuff like this can result. I recommend rather than tweaking the logic, to simply run it every minute. It really shouldn't be a heavyweight process.
If you simply can't do that for reasons I can't grasp, then you can edit the VizAlertsConfig workbook, and modify the Custom SQL in the data source to change the time range that comments are recognized in.
