I'm preparing a stable upload of gnome-system-monitor in version
2.8.1-3 to address a bug that slept under the carpet, #289384 (and some
parts of #311714).
Basically, gnome-system-monitor is unusable on system where special
filesystems are mounted, such as bindfs.
The fix is readable in the attached interdiff which is trivial and
I've installed this package on a laptop running Debian sarge and
confirm the fix.
An i386 package and the diff can be found at:
