Linux 2.6 with nptl changes the way threads vs processes are treated. Threads no longer get their own entry under /proc as they did with linux 2.4 They are now listed under /proc/$PID/task/
gnome-system-monitor / libgtop has not yet been updated to deal with this /proc layout. As a consequence, only processes are listed, never threads even if show threads is selected from the view menu.
