Description of problem:
stracing the wireless applet shows that is keeps opening the same set of png
files based on signal strength:
ie, open("/usr/share/pixmaps/wireless-applet//signal-81-100.png", O_RDONLY) = 26
These are very small png files and can be stored in memory rather than re-read
each time. This will help let the hard drive take a rest. The constant ticking
of my notebook's harddrive gives me an ulcer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add to Panel -> Internet -> Wireless link monitor
2. strace -p <pid_of_wireless-applet>
gnome.org bug fixed, we just have to get the fix in the next release.
in rawhide now.
