Bug#341866: xsysinfo: update option now in milli-seconds

Package: xsysinfo
Version: 1.7-1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

The -update option of previous versions defined the update timeout in
seconds.  In 1.7 this was changed to milli-seconds.  Here's a patch,
that updates the man page according to this new behaviour.

BTW: In the Debian diff of XSysinfo.ad I see the following:

--- xsysinfo-1.7.orig/XSysinfo.ad
+++ xsysinfo-1.7/XSysinfo.ad
-! update interval for all values in milli-seconds (ThMO)
-*bar.update:           200
+! update interval for all values in seconds
+*bar.update:           1

This doesn't seem to be correct. The current version of the package
defines the update interval in milli-seconds, not in seconds, which
results in a very quick update (every milli-second). IMHO this part of
the patch should be removed.
