You can't monitor /proc
Forget about it, it's kernel maintained data, unless forcing polling and
it would be horribly expensive, and probably the best way to consume 100%
of your CPU all the time.

Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 17:12:50 EDT
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
