Bug Description

Indicator-datetime only updates the date when it starts up. Because of this, if indicator-datetime is left running overnight, it doesn't show the right date the next day.

I'm still seeing this bug in Oneiric (indicator-datetime 0.3.1-0ubuntu1.1). The date that is displayed is always correct, but the highlighted date in the calendar is wrong the first time you click on the indicator. It is corrected the second time you click on it.

I still experience this bug now. After some days without restart, the date shown above the calendar gets stuck. The calendar sheet below highlights the right day however. Ubuntu 12.04.3

About importance medium: A date and time indicator, that displays a wrong date - this is a total failure is guess...
