I'm applying this patch but note that I've changed the code a little.
When I tested the patch, it stopped counting down (ie working) after changing settings on-the-fly.
In any case, I wanted to change the implementation a little so there's a separate DispatchTimer for both the "countdown timer updating" and the "polling updating". So as to not force the UpdateStatus() to be reliant on the logic of whether the every-second timer thinks an update is due.
I'm not sure if I like the position of the countdown timer textbox - but we can think more about that later.

This feature, in it's final form, includes an option in app.config "ShowCountdown"
