Semi-sync only guarantees that the slave has *received* the statement in it's relay log.
The rpl_semi_sync_master_timeout value is the timeout for the slave to acknowledge this,
whereas the Seconds_Behind_Master value gives an indication of how far statement
*execution* is lagging.
Unhappiness is discouraged and will be corrected with kitten pictures.
