Description of problem:
The network part of the GNOME system monitor can be tricked into
giving false information about the system load. When excessively
leftclicking on the network thing, it will display there is 0% network
load, even when there is heavy network traffic. It will also stop
drawing bars that indicate the network traffic.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start a large file transfer
2. click like your life depends on it on the network traffic monitor

Actual Results:  The applet indicated 0% network traffic and didn't
draw any bars, even though there was quite a bit of network traffic.

Can you confirm continuous heavy network load with external measurement?

If I attempt to reproduce, my reported CPU load jumps significantly
and network load drops dramatically. However, the other machine
involved in the transfer does indicate a significant drop in network
throughput as well, so these measurements may be accurate.
