It's a weird problem, the first time it dissapeared was around the time I
disabled openntpd so I assumed that was the problem. I since, for other reasons,
reinstalled OpenBSD and had the same problem even with openntpd disabled, the
problems since dissapeared again. I still think it might somehow be related to
the system time, either way it does seem to run fine with the default status bar
update delay.
