Could you please retry with the latest plugin uploaded to unstable
(0.5.0-3) ? It includes patches not to wake the cpu to often, and to use
sysfs if available.

When debugging the panel plugin, I noticed that animated progress bar in
some gtk themes engines (like murrine) hit the cpu pretty hard. Nothing
too dramatic when the progressbar is only present during a short time
(for a copy or something else), but in a panel plugin it's always there,
so it may be responsible.

Could you check that too?
