How long should one wait after capturing a late season swarm before attempting a recompile?

I had a small swarm yesterday evening. This morning I got it into a brood box. Since there is not a snowballs chance of it surviving I plan to combine back to parent. I was thinking that I should wait about a week before doing the recombine.

You may be right. As I said, Opinions are like...........
I just have never had the experience with the queen left behind that you describe. I will admit, it, like anything else, is possible.
The odds, tho, are questionable.
