I see, for the time being, I'll activate then display-time before
app-activate... :-)

When I'm already nitpicking, then I think the point behind the warning
time in minutes, like this: `3 min.'  is unnecessary. If there is a
white-space behind `min ' then it represents the (well known) physical
unit and must not be an abbreviated minute.

Then this is calling for a general mode-line guide-line ;-).  Everything
textual must be followed by a whitespace.
