Date/time disappears and reappears

Bug Description

I have the status bar showing both the time and date. For some reason, either the time or the date disappears and reappears every few seconds--but not both at the same time, only one or the other. It's very strange.

  Installed: 5.17-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 5.17-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 5.17-0ubuntu1 0
        500 precise/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Same deal here. Doesn't always do it, but most of the time. Haven't figured out what activity causes it.

A little experimentation trying different time-based statuses:

*) "time" comes and goes every 3-5 seconds

*) "date" comes and goes every 10-20 seconds

*) "time_utc" pops out and in about once per minute.

I "solved" the problem by commenting out time and date.

I continue to see this issue with the default status bar time modules. I see it with the date, time, and UTC modules.
