[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#522711: xfce4-systemload-plugin: CPU monitor overstates CPU usage

Package: xfce4-systemload-plugin
Version: 0.4.2-2
Severity: normal

The plugin often reports 100% usage when other system monitors (top, htop,
gnome-system-monitor) show much lower usage (often below 30%).  This seems to
occur when a process that is both disk and CPU intensive, such as a systemwide
'find' or an rsync based backup, is running.
