snap doesn't filter out squashfs entries

Bug Description

Previous versions of File Systems only showed my two harddrives, and was pretty useful.

In Ubuntu 18.04 gnome-system-monitor > File Systems now shows 35 lines of uninteresting lines, like /var/lib/snapd ...

I tried switching from Snap- to classic apt-based version, with these commands:

sudo snap remove gnome-system-monitor
sudo apt-get install gnome-system-monitor

I got the good old System Files back, showing just the two hard drives of interest to me, but "snap remove gnome-system-monitor" removed a lot of extra packages, so my shortcuts stopped working, and possibly other stuff as well. I had to revert to snap-based gnome-system-monitor to get them working again.

How can I get the previous and useful File Systems back, only showing my two hard drives?

Sorry for bumping an old issue, but the "fix" released on upstream seems to be the "nuclear" option of completely removing `snap`... which might not work for everyone. :(
