affects CPUMonitor Docklet (not sure of its version).


The green 'eye' doesn't always get bigger when the CPU is being used.  When hovering over the eye, it reports a very different CPU usage than System Monitor, top, or the gnome panel app suggests.  I believe that the value reported by CPUMonitor is incorrect.

Steps to reproduce.  

Setup several programs running high cpu, in my case I have VMWare running a virtual compiling code, I was deleting a couple of snapshot to free up disk space, also I was running Diskspace analyser.  I then noticed that CPUMonitor was still green.
