Description of problem:
Under the resources tab, the bottom graph has truncated graph labels for the network speed. The speed labels currently read:
Notice that the labels aren't in ascending order from the bottom up as one might expect. Then notice that if one adds 60.0 to each label to get the next one, one expects the progression 0.0, 60.0, 120.0, 180.0, 240.0, 300.0. These match the displayed labels if one truncates the most significant digit. Conclusion: there is a missing leading digit.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-system-monitor.x86_64 3.4.1-2.fc17 @anaconda-0
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run gnome-system-monitor
2. click on the "Resorces" tab
3. observe the truncated network speeds labels on the left side of the
"Netork History" (bottom) graph.
truncated labels for the speed graph
non-truncated labels for the speed graph
I'll include a screen shot.

This small .png shows the same problem. I nominate the change from "KB/s" to "KiB/s" forgetting about right-justification of the label field against the y-axis.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
I still see this with the Fedora 19 Live XFCE environment, so it would be nice if the version could be bumped to 19 on this bug report.
It doesn't seem to be a problem with the Fedora 19 Live Gnome environment, as I think I got it to label the Y-scale with 250.0K and 500.0K at one point. But in the Gnome environment, it's got a couple other problems not seen with XFCE: the scale and grid vanish much of the time (RHBZ 981023 and 951264) and it impossible to access the program's preferences. The latter might be operator error on my part; I don't often use Gnome anymore.
Fedora 19 LXDE - the same behaviour :-(
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
