Yes, there is a bug in the display of the countdown trigger. If the countdown has been triggered previously, it will immediately show for any new players joining the map after that, and then it will not reappear if it is reactivated later in the following round. Rather annoying if you are a commander and need to time the last forced respawn to the 1 sec before countdown runs out.
Anyway I remember Yoshi once stated that the original intention was for all the dead Allied players to spawn as soon as reinforcements were cut off, so noone would be cheated out of their round if they were waiting for respawn while reinfs were cut off.
Personally I like the mechanism, and it makes for a hectic fight during the last stages of the map. Unfortunately there is a lot of players that seemingly doesn't know about it, and so doesn't try to defend or retake 2nd floor, which is a major mistake for the allied team.
