I was wondering if someone has noticed that LXTask actually shows +100MB
usage more than System Monitor and Conky so what is going on?
I have System Monitor installed on Lubutnu 11.04 (was testing something)
and Conky as well. While each of System Monitor (GNOME APP) and Conky are
showing the same memory usage, LXTask add *100MB* to that.
Example: System Monitor + Conky shows 287MB while Firefox Loaded with two
tabs. On the other hand, LXTask shows 387MB.

Any idea?
