looks like some improvements have been made, but there are still
problems (see attached screenshot).  you can see the that cpu hits
occur less frequently now (maybe every 3 seconds instead of every
second).  however, now every 5 cycles or so, the battery monitor ends
up using 20% of the cpu for 3 seconds.
