Thanks, I tried that real quick but results are probably even worse: it 
paints white without halo so it looks a bit better on dark themes but it 
makes it even worse on light ones. The worse was on Air Netbooks, the 
text almost invisible especially if there are 3 characters so it should 
use smaller (thinner) font. Two small screenshots attached.


P.S. BTW it does not match the way the clock applet paints text, may be 
(when we have reliable solution) it should be reused there as well
