Just a hint from my experience. I couldn't get stable readings out of this sensor when using 3.3V. I had to use 5V supply. I adjusted the voltage devider on my ESP8266 accordingly.

Re: Why can't I set the interval for at dummy to 0?

That possible. But even when sending one value every 30 minutes to both controller, it fails so it does not seem to be related to the queue filling up. So I agree that it sounds like a bug. I'll log it on github.
