Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-system-monitor

Sorting processes list by memory usage on Processes tab in System Monitor usually works but after a period of time there are sometimes mistakes that can be corrected only by clicking on a Memory tab twice (first click sorts properly, but in reverse order).

Screenshot attached.

We have improved the sorting mechanism for numeric columns in the 3.4.0 release. Could anyone please try if this issue still exists?

Setting as Invalid as there has been no response in the last month, feel free to reopen after providing a confirmation that the issue still exists in system monitor version 3.4 or above.
