-your indentation style is inconsistent, decide if you want to use tabs
or spaces, in context of the file: use tabs!
-return does not need braces.
-the /tmp/.dwmbuf.tmp could get filled up if a process is misconfigured
and spams /tmp/dwmbuf with lots of lines. You only retrieve one line per
second. Also showing a message for only a second is not enough to read it.

I think you should not use the second file /tmp/.dwmbuf.tmp and instead
display just the newest message from /tmp/dwmbuf and if there are no new
messages incoming, then display it for 5seconds or such.

Also have you thought about using a pipe instead of a file?
