1. have Created a new item in the list and the wf would send an email

When you want actions to happen in x amount of minutes it doesn't always happen at that exact that time. Sending emails is infamous for this. The emails usually move a little slower than you'd like.
So basically you have the workflow running on creation of a new item in the list?
Workflow, any value entered in the Minutes field of a control which accepts minutes, takes twice or sometime three times longer than the time specified to execute
For E.g.:- "Pause Until..." control, by specifying
1 minute, causes the Pause to wait there for 5 minutes or sometimes more than
This is very critical in controlling CREATE & MODIFY
wf's, as in this timing is vital.
When you say you set the Pause for "1 minute" you meant to say that you set it in the Action's configuration- correct?
The default Timer that is controlling this action will ignore this 1 minute setting and will fall back to its 5 minute default unless a command is used to set the timer differently.
Here is a document that tells you how to set your Timer and should resolve your issue:
Let me know if that works for you.
