0.22 is now in the tree, there are still some remaining bugs in the
libdesklets part which should be easy to fix... as soon as you manage to
get a working display which actually displays something... see below.

The just added desklets work all without a problem.

The problem with the refresh is the use of threads. The threads which
are supposed to update the display get created (instantiated), but they
don't run (the functions doesn't seem to get called). I don't know how
to debug this problem further (a short test program with python-threads
works without problems).
