the X server has no way of knowing when the system time changes from under it. 
the timestamp is specified in milliseconds from server startup, and the only way
to get that is to call gettimeofday().  gettimeofday() warps when you change the
system clock.

if you can come up with a portable way to calculate the time since server
startup in milliseconds that doesn't warp when the system clock changes, that'd
be great.  until then this isn't fixable.
