xclock issue

Alexey Vatchenko-2
Hi!

Today i tried xclock and it was not working.
`xclock -d` and time is not ticking.
Then i found that if you make the windows redraw itself (overlap it with
another window) the time is ticking.

Tested in twm and evilwm.

I can confirm that with mwm, too.

Updates once per minute (the default) under fluxbox.

Try
        xclock -d -update 1
to see an update every second.
