"always monitor a connected device" no longer works in jaunty

Bug Description

Binary package hint: netspeed

I've checked "always monitor a connected device" in netspeed_applet preferences, but it never shows anything other than eth0, which has no cable plugged in and no traffic whatsoever.

E.g. currently 'ip route' shows that the default route is via ppp0, and there are no routes whatsoever on other interfaces. (ip a shows that eth0 is UP, which is not as important.)

I recall sending a patch upstream to fix this very issue way back when I was still running Hardy: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=503518#c18

I never noticed this problem in Intrepid. Now I upgraded to Jaunty and the issue is back.
