Thanks for the test with a large number of occupants. It shows that the log-normal distribution of the initial delay is functioning properly.

Like suggested, it would be convenient for the reader of the manual to include the definition of the parameters. From your worked example, I have understood that "Avg" and "Std. Dev." correspond to the mean and standard deviation of the non-logarithmized samples. While a log-normal function is normally defined in literature with location parameter "mu" and scale parameter "sigma" on a logarithmic scale. For the example "Avg"=5 and "Std. Dev."=3, this would result in "mu"=1.46 and "sigma"=0.55.
