        No, I never use Switch User.



    Here is my fix. I backuped the eviolution settings at evolution
    mailer and the dir ~/.gconf.

    After that, I totally remove dir ~/.gconf/ and logout/login. this
    seems fix the clock problem.
    of course, you have to reset gnome panel.



Sorry, that was a false claim. The problem is back here.

Check the /tmp directory any ways.  Maybe something is happening there.

I have deleted all files in /tmp as root with no issues.
