Auto-dismiss APEX Universal theme success messages

In the APEX 5.1.1 Universal Theme demonstration application, a code snippet is included showing how to automatically dismiss Success messages via JavaScript using the apex.theme42.configureSuccessMessages API.
Trouble is it only works in some circumstances, as can be seen in screenshot from a demonstration application below.

You can try the demo application to observe the issue, and a solution that works right now. You can download the application, which probably works on earlier versions of the Universal theme - I haven't tested it.
