Bug Description

When viewing a fairly consistent/static Process list in the GNOME System Monitor it is hard to know that the list is actually being updated in real-time at ~1Hz.

System Monitor should give some indication that the date is updating. On the command line, 'top' achieves the 'throbber' effect by showing the current time (HH:mm:ss) and uptime. 'watch' achieves this effect by showing the current date and time.

Both tools also show the update-frequency; perhaps this could be shown as a combo-box.
