Scheduler weather setting not honoring Watchdog's mount lock policy?

Hi there,
i am running into this problem with Ekos's Scheduler.
I am using a CEM70 and a Aldi Roof based DIY ROR with Weather Radio for weather alert especially rain monitoring.
if I run the capture manually by using the Capture module then everything is fine. The Watchdog monitor the weather status and if it's raining then it commands the mount to park and wait for it to park. After the mount parked, the dome start parking. Everything work as intended.
but if I run the capture sequence automatically by Scheduler then if it's raining the scheduler commands the mount and dome to park at the same time. This is potentially very dangeroud for my setup. I want an option to make the Scheduler to wait for the mount to be parked before start parking the dome. Like what is implemented in Watchdog 
is there any way to do this, am I missing something here?
Thanks!

As a temporary fix you could write a script to park the mount.  I havne't found a guide on how to do it yet.

I found the same issue some time ago and reported here:
indilib.org/forum/mounts/10549-10micron-...-or-indi-driver.html
As to his answer, Wolfgang is looking into it. Hope that will be fixed in the next release.
In the meantime I added a magnetic sensor to the mount and connected it to the roof circuit so that it stops the roof if the mount is not parked.

Yeah. Yesterday the ror hits my cem70 while it's parking and today I got annnoying big PE jump. Probably damaged my worm gear :(

Doesn't sound good. Could you please post your log so that I could track down why scope and dome parking runs in parallel.

I checked it against the simulators. At least that way that I used it for testing, the dome starts parking as soon as the mount is parked. Therefore, for me the most plausible explanation is that the mount drivers for 10micron and the CEM70 have a bug that they report the parked mode too early.

I did not enable logging for mount and scheduler at the time. But I can tell that if I start the shutdown procedure in Scheduler then the mount park first and the dome waits for the mount to be parked. Only when I am running Scheduler and there is a weather alert then the mount and the dome park simultaneously. Outside of Schheduler, the dome and mount responses to weather alert correctly (mount park first then dome). It seems Scheduler has a different way reacting to Weather Alert rather than just run the observatory shutdown protocol that is preset in this module.

Is there a dome parking policy configured on the Observatory tab? This could be the explanation, that from there the parking of the dome is triggered.

Ok, we found it. Please deactivate the alarm setting in the observatory tab. This is independent of the mount status and thus triggers directly dome parking.

You mean the  Alert-> Park Dome under Actions section right?
