Date/time drawing over ML menu

Issue #1464 resolved
ats1995 created an issue

Every time the time changes(every minute), I get the date/time item from canon menu drawn over ML menu. It usually only flickers, but sometimes it doesn't go away before ML menu is drawn over again. This only happens when I'm at second wrench in canon menu, so for must users it won't be a problem. But since screen brightness is under this wrench, and that setting is clearly my most frequently used in canon menu, the problem is present to me.

Cosmetic only.

    Known bug, but hard to fix.

    If it doesn't go away, you are probably browsing the help (in that mode it doesn't redraw constantly).

    It flicker two times when in ML menu before disappearing, and it sustains when browsing help for a long time.

    It's not important to me, so I would let it be if you have other things to do, which i bet you have.

    Btw: I think it makes sense to report even these small issues to make issues easily accessible for developers who want to fix them.

    Sure, it makes sense. I've got a 500D now, so I can check these myself easier.

    The problem here is that I don't know how to fix this issue without introducing stability problems. Such a fix was present in 2011 Xmas version, but subsequent stress tests revealed that the fix might cause lockups or err70.
