there are more efficient means (CPU-wise) to update the timeline than  
using an event sent every second to tell you that one second has  
elapsed, you can achieve the same thing by polling the input time  
property within the X11 idle event loop, or through a timer callback,  
which won't slow down VLC playback speed as this will be done outside  
of VLC threads.
Moreover, I wouldn't advise either to call Redraw callback directly  
whenever an event justify a redraw (Play/Pause/Stop/Timeline...); you  
should invalidate the drawing area instead in the event callback, so  
that it is repainted as part of the X11 event thread (for the same  
reasons as before)
