I can confirm this and also can point out that this is also affecting the 
stipple pattern of Mosfet's Liquid theme. If I choose the Liquid theme and 
set the clock to plain I thought the stipple would continue through the tray 
of the clock. However, I'm presented with the outcome shown in the attached 
image. Is the clock applet tray treated specially for any specific reason?
