Delay between Steps impact on selectOptionByLabel/Value

The selectOptionByValue and selectOptionByLabel actions appear to be severely delayed when using the “Delay between steps” feature. It is as though there is an added delay for every option in the select box.

This can cause large delays where there is a long list of values.

The log below shows a 45-second delay in selecting the value.
