Sytem Monitor hangs while scrolling through the list of running processes

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-system-monitor

I frequently use system monitor check running processes and stop processes that have stalled or zombified. I cannot do this in Karmic due to that fact that it itself stalls and appears to zombify when I try to scroll the list of running processes. I expect System Monitor to function as before or this really is one of the more severe regressions I have discovered to date!

Ooops, sorry I wrongly registered as being affected by this old bug, while I'm having the same problem with gnome-system-monitor 3.2.0-0ubuntu1 on Oneiric with a 3.0.0-12-generic kernel.
