Re: Strange display of CPU usage

Hello Marcus,

the problem is caused when the cpu usage monitoring is initializing - it needs 
two monitoring cycles to get the the difference, whereas the first cycle is 
internally set to -1 and it is set to real value on next cycle.

* Fixed display of cpu user/system/wait usage which temporarily displayed -1.0%
  between two monitoring cycles while cpu monitoring was initializing. Thanks to
  Marcus Muelbuesch for report.
