CAN_REACH gave a TLE first time and then got accepred

i submitted this and got a TLE Solution: 54308886 | CodeChef
i was shocked, i submitted the code again and it got accepted. This bug costed me 10min penalty; can it be compensated in any way?

The issue is around for a long time when we use python or pypy. In other languages, it is not an issue. I also got a similar penalty yesterday on Magic planks. Seems like CodeChef doesn’t care for python coders.
