Description Enne Eziarc 2010-08-18 23:36:06 UTC
I've just noticed that both my desktop and laptop get stuck at 100% CPU at exactly 00:00:00 until the display updates, which is a full minute when seconds display is turned off. Can reproduce this on both machines by setting the clock back to 23:59:55.

50-60% of the CPU time is in X and the rest is the xfce4-panel process - for some reason it doesn't go above 100% on SMP though.

Try xfce4-panel-4.7.4 (and finally 4.7.6) with rest of ~arch version of Xfce
packages. If it's still a problem, reopen this bug and report it also to:

Xfce 4.6 is no longer maintained (neither by upstream or Gentoo).
Everyones working on getting Xfce 4.8 ready to be released (and finally stabilized) January/Febuary.
