The X11ParentRelative stuff was already there. Take a look at the existing 
kdebase/kicker/applets/clock/clock.cpp in CVS. It uses X11ParentRelative to 
make the date widget transparent. I was simply extending this technique to 
the time widget. Some additional work was needed because the existing clock 
code insists on setting a background color even when "Use custom colors" is 
turned off.

OK, no big deal as long as the bug gets fixed eventually. I think you might 
have your work cut out for you, but let me know if I can help.

Should I file a bug report as a reminder?
