Bug Description

Binary package hint: alarm-clock-applet

Package version: 0.2.6-1
Release: Ubuntu 9.10

What happens:

When I set up and start a timer, the clock on the applet appears frozen even thought the countdown is in progress, e.g. if I started a 6-minute timer, the panel applet if frozen at 00:06:00.
When I place the mouse cursor over the applet, the tooltip shows the countdown in parenthesis.

What I expected to happen:

If there is a timer countdown going on, it should be reflected on the applet.
