System Monitor applets show high CPU when there isn't

I am running KDE 3.5.10 on Fedora 8.
For a long time I have used the System Monitor and System Guard applets for
some compact blinkenlights on my system's activity. Recently both applets
have started showing constant 100% activity all the even though the System
Guard application (from Ctrl-Esc) shows only 5-10% activity when my
machine is quiet. I have sat and watched actual CPU activity sorted by
User or System and never see the activity reported by the applets. I use
GKrellm and it doesn't show such high usage. I've also watched top and
have seen nothing.
It is as if the scaling function for both applets broke and even restarting
KDE doesn't fix things. I can't think of anything I did - the change just
happened. All else on the machine is normal. I'm stumped - these are handy
applets but now not so useful.
