* reevaluating org-x11idle-exists-p with new org-clock-x11idle-program-name

I'm using a custom python program to display x11 idle time. I've set
org-clock-x11idle-program-name accordingly but org-x11idle-exists-p is
still nil. I'm guessing it's defvar'ed in org-clock.el before
org-clock-x11idle-program-name is set. Evaluating the defvar of
org-x11idle-exists-p afterwards indeed sets it to t.

I could do (setq org-x11idle-exists-p t) but there must be a better way
to handle the definition of a new org-clock-x11idle-program-name.

How are you setting org-clock-x11idle-program-name? In your init file or
via custom? 

Looking at the code, I would expect that provided
org-clock-x11idle-program-name is set before you load org-clock.el, it
should 'just work'. I think your right in your assumption it is not set
before org-clock.el is loaded. The question is why is org-clock.el being
loaded before you have set the program name?

There are a few possible reasons, depending on whether your setting the
program name with a setq in your init file, setting it via custom and
whether you have altered when custom settings are loaded or where in
your init file you load org.

I would probably just put a (setq org-clock-x11idele-program-name ...)
early in your init file to ensure it is set before org is loaded and all
should then work.

Setting it via custom works thanks. Somehow org was loaded by some
dependency before I explicitly used (require 'org). I guess I could also
use some use-package configuration.

Actually it doesn't… Even with org-clock-x11idle-program-name set via
custom, org-x11idle-exists-p is still nil at startup. And
custom-set-variables is set at the very beginning of my init file. I'll
file an issue.
