There is a much more common issue then when changing the time from kcm: When 
waking up from suspend, the clock shows the time when the computer was 
suspended instead of the current one, for avg. half a minute. This makes a 
buggy appearance to the user, and is annoying. So should you decide to listen 
to a signal instead of updating more often, don't forget also listening for 
Solid::resumed() or something like that.
