I think you do have a headache :). I wasn't referring to the first "release" word, but the second "releasing" word

As I tried to explain, the action is started (executed) when the last timer expires.

This option is referring to when the action is STOPPED, not when it is started. That is, when the mapped action should be released. I agree that using the same word twice is not sensible and may lead to confusion (as indeed it has), but my point is that your understanding of the second word is incorrect, its not related to the start (performing or executed or executing) but the end, and as such, it could be ""stop performing" or "stop executing" the re-mapped action".

I think what causes more confusion, is that really the effect of this option actually depends on the actual mapping chose, because as I tried to explain, some actions only ever do anything when the button is released (giving the effect of executing the action when the physical button is released) while others start and end when the physical button is pressed and some start when the physical button is pressed and end when the button is released.

In reality, the important thing is that you understand it so you can choose the appropriate words when translating. I will probably change it now to stop executing or something, but still its not 100% clear what it means, but its clearly difficult to get across in a one-liner!
