Default IC Engine time step and crank angle doesn't make sense

Hi all,

When doing an engine simulation in ICE, I get the following thing happening:

The crank angle increment per time step is always 0.25. However the time step changes from time to time.

How one explains the crank angle increment remains the same, but the time step varies. It puzzles me
