I think setTimeout() only executes once, you don't need clearTimeout()
unless you want to cancel the scheduled event before it takes place.  This
should work if you remove the clearTimeout() call.

The way it looks is that you set up a timed event to happen after a half
second, then you clear it - presumably before it gets triggered.
