[gnome-network] Bug#269396: gnome-nettool: Better "multi-tasking" while tracerouting

Package: gnome-nettool
Version: 0.99.2-1
Severity: wishlist

It seems like gnome-nettool allows one to switch tab while doing an action. 
To allow this is discutable but I like it so I won't criticize :). What I don't
like is how the tool is sluggish (read: inusable because it is so slow) while
doing a traceroute (and maybe other operations too but it doesn't take as long).

It might be due to the underlying tool, but wouldn't it be possible to renice it
or something like that so that the gnome-nettool is not "quasi"-frozen?
