gnome-system-monitor memory bug.
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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
Some services (e.g. bonobo-activation-service,dbus-launch) show memory usage of several _million_ terabytes.
Services should show normal memory usage.
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.
i think it is not gnome-system-monitor's bug, when i use kernel-2.6.18-8 this work OK,but when use kernel-2.6.18-128, this bug appear.
use kernel-22.214.171.124 is also OK
