i just checked out the internet time feature of wmclockmon, but it seems
that it's using the wrong time calculation for displaying the internet

Currently, at 15:35 local time (CEST), which corresponds to 13:36 UTC,
which corresponds in Internet time to @608 .beats, your clock mentions
that it's now @66 .beats, which is translated 02:33 a.m.

It seems that it's using the 12-hour clock and ignoring the DST, so when
using these facts it would be 2:33 p.m. now here in hamburg, which is,
ignoring the p.m. suffix, equal to @66. BTW: H12 is set to 'false'.

This happens with wmclockmon-0.8.1 on FreeBSD 6.0-BETA5 and WindowMaker-0.92.0

Any idea if this could be fixed? :)
