cpufreq-applet not displaying text on both instances when two are running to mointor a dual-core system

Description of problem:
cpufreq-applet is not displaying text on both instances when there are two
instances of the applet running to mointor a dual-core system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-applets-188.8.131.52-3.fc6 (RHEL5 Beta)
gnome-applets-184.108.40.206-7.fc6 (Rawhide from 3-Oct-2006)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add cpufreq-applet to panel
2. Add second instance of cpufreq-applet to panel (for 2nd core)
First instance shows graphic and text speed indicators. Second indicator only
shows graphics. Graphics still missing when preferences changed to monitor core
1 instead of core 0 on second instance of the applet.
Graphics and text displayed for both instances of cpufreq-applet when appearance
set to "Graphic and text"
Changing the type from "Graphic and text" to something else and back again will
temporarily cause the text to be displayed along with the graphics, but the
problem will reoccur when the user logs out and back in.
Also, the tooltips says "CPU 0" regardless of the monitoring preference.
testing a fix now.
without this fix, the cpufreq applet does not really work on multprocessor machines.
A package has been built which should help the problem described in
this bug report. This report is therefore being closed with a resolution
of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the solution does
not work for you.
