In SOA when the approval task is escalated, the reminder notification is not sent.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

Create an approval process with single level approval task of user type with the following settings:


  Set Reminder - Once
  Interval - 2 Minutes
  After Assignment


  Escalate After 4 Minutes

Create an approval task

  1.1st notification mail sent to Manager 0 Mins
  2.2nd notification mail (reminder) sent to Manager 2 Mins
  3.3rd notification mail(Escalation) set to Manager's Manager 4 Mins
  4.4th notification mail(reminder)set to Manager's Manager 6 Mins -- this is the step that is not working, reminder is not sent
