Time not updating in menu bar (2012 iMac)

    ML 10.8.2 on new iMac (see sig), menu bar time not updating. If I go to Time in Sys Prefs, the time is correct. I tried turning on the "seconds" display but that does not update either. If I click on the time it will update for that moment, then go back to no updating.

    I do have Little Snitch installed, but I have not seen a request from it to allow a time.apple.com connection. But I don't think this is the issue because the time in Prefs is correct and advancing normally.

    I tried searching MR and google without success. Any ideas?

    Found the culprit - iStats Menu had a known bug to cause this. It was fixed in update 4.02, but I already had this update. Just updated to latest 4.03 and problem is now fixed. I guess 4.02 did not correctly address the problem.

    menu, time, wrong, date & time
