Okay, this should stay in testing for the moment.

There's a case where the persistent timer *never* run until your machine
is running just at the right moment. I prepared a patch for this
problem, just need to test and submit it tonight.

I also forgot to set the PACKAGER variable on this machine, so the
packages have "Unkown packager", I should probably rebuild the packages
soon, then.
