I want to go on record here and say I'm now against the delay of newpixbot. Let's just let it post the image as soon as it can, and others can race to post the first -ONG or comment afterward, if they so choose.
I'd like to take the opposing view and say I like having the newpix posted by
postbotswetware such as myself, with newpixbot to backstop us. I don't want to grow complacent that newpixbot will always be there. mscha after all is a volunteer, not an employee of xkcd. If, in two or three years, mscha wants to take a vacation, where are we then?
Indeed. Besides, if we let only the newpixbot post the newpix, there wouldn't be any opportunity to come up with new, clever ONGs (the newpixbot recycles its ONGs).

If you consider each comic number to be n + 2591, then it would collide on frame 3847 (comic 1256) at 2913-08-27 06:00 EDT.
...After doing that calculation, I realized you were maybe asking about when it would hit frame 2592. That would be 2013-07-05 23:00 EDT.
Someone should really check my math though.
Actually, Click and Drag only contained 225 distinct panels. Empty spots were filled in by solid white or solid black panels as needed.
However, how many different panels were there to Umwelt? Is anybody even sure that all of its panels were discovered?
Oh you're clever. I wonder how many unique views that page has...
