      Description

      Scenario: Have a process definition with a process-level event subprocess. Define a timer start event in the event subprocess and configure it with an expression that accesses a process variable, e.g. ${startDate}. Supply the variable when starting the process instance.

      Current behavior:
      The variable cannot be resolved in the expression.

      Expected behavior:
      The variable can be resolved

      Reason:
      PvmExecutionImpl#start creates the timer job before setting the variables.
