This is 100% in taskmgr.exe binary, not something deep down the stack, as it happens too when running ros taskmgr.exe on WinXP.
When you do a single mouse-click right in the empty space next to menubar
the status bar entry "zugesicherter Speicher" gets invisible and is repainted a second afterwards (may happen also when leaving menu).
It should stay visible in this case.
In other situations, e.g: opening taskmgr: other columns of the status bar sometimes were not properly updated in-time (CPU-usage/process-count).
Here is a patch that fixes those issues:
Full name:Joachim Henze
Reason was that the Single-Responsibility-principle was violated within the code. Status bar was refreshed from 3 different threads. The patch moves the responsibility completely to 1 of these threads when not in menu-state. I chose the one from performance page, because it already queried all needed informations beforehand. Additionally an explicit refresh is requested when leaving the menu-state.
The fix also saves lines of code and some memory as well.
( Perspectively I suggest merging the remaining update threads into a single one, that is aware of which page is currently opened and queries all the needed informations.... I think MS is doing the same.... )
