Bug#588841: ksysguard: Combined "System Monitor" applet fails to work correctly after logout/login cycle

Package: ksysguard
Version: 4:4.4.4-1
Severity: normal

I can successfully monitor cpu usage, temperatures, memory usage, and
ethernet usage via the appropriate individual sysguard applets which
indicates the underlying sensors and ksysguard itself are working fine
for these individual applets.

However, I prefer the combined "System monitor" ksysguard applet since
it takes up less space in the panel and gives a big easy-to-read
result whenever you click on it.  For KDE4.2 (backported to Debian
Lenny) the combined applet kept its configuration through a
logout/login cycle, but for KDE4.4 (for Debian squeeze) it loses that
configuration and replaces the single icon on the panel by a
configuration icon that takes up a huge amount of space on the panel
and which appears not to work very well.  The net result is on each
login I must remove that configuration icon, add the "System monitor"
applet, then configure that applet to define which system statistics I
want to view. I believe this inconvenience assures virtually nobody
will want to use this combined applet, and in any case this bad
behaviour is a regression between KDE-4.2 and 4.4 so I hope the issue
gets fixed with some urgency.
