gnome-system-monitor memory bug.

Description of problem:

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

gnome-system-monitor 2.16.0

How reproducible:

Open gnome-system-monitor (as root)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gnome-system-monitor (as root)
2. Wait a few seconds
3. Watch as memory usage for some services jumps to millions of TB
Actual results:
Some services (e.g. bonobo-activation-service,dbus-launch) show memory usage of several _million_ terabytes.

Expected results:
Services should show normal memory usage.

Additional info:
Services affected seem to vary from instance to instance, with the exception of dbus-launch. ps shows normal memory usage on all services. gnome-system-monitor shows normal memory usage under the resources tab.
