When the UDS is pre-rendering pages, it can delay idle mode by using the background busy ipc-call ("sysSetBgBusy"). This would allow the clock updates to continue until pre-rendering is finished. I think that is what you are seeing. The extra eripc-call makes sure that the change is 'significant-enough' to trigger a screen-update I guess.
