Bug#158667: bubblemon: New bubblemon causes excessive HDD activity

Package: bubblemon
Version: 1.2.6-0.1
Severity: normal

After upgrading from bubblemon 1.2.3 to the 1.2.6 release on restart of gnome,
post upgrade, hdd activity goes through the roof.  And bubblemon and gnome
begin to slow.  I left this for about 10mins, before removing it from the panel.No obvious idea to why.  This was simple apt-get -u install bubblemon.

To show you what I mean.  Here's gnome running with no bubblemon :

avg-cpu:  %user   %nice    %sys   %idle
           1.50   97.00    1.00    0.50

Device:            tps   Blk_read/s   Blk_wrtn/s   Blk_read   Blk_wrtn
dev8-0           12.50         0.00       168.00          0        336
dev8-1            0.00         0.00         0.00          0          0

Here's the same system after starting bubblemon :

avg-cpu:  %user   %nice    %sys   %idle
          13.50   77.00    9.50    0.00

Device:            tps   Blk_read/s   Blk_wrtn/s   Blk_read   Blk_wrtn
dev8-0          202.50         0.00      2372.00          0       4744
dev8-1            0.00         0.00         0.00          0          0

I am able to reproduce this on a 2nd machine (also running unstable/2.4.19).

Please advise,
Cheers Rich Wale.
