I've tried this, but as the plugin is _not_ configured when this code is 
  called, it crashes because argv points to somewhere it shouldn't.
(gdb) p *argv
Cannot access memory at address 0x807dc000

To make a workaround, i commented the crashing call to SetTimer() in 
genmon_construct() at the end of main.c . Now i'm presented the 
configuration window !! Sweeeet ! Got to figure how to make it monitor 
my temperatures and cpu speed :)
Dunno if it's a permanent fix to apply, as it seems to work with Linux...

As Julien Devemy rewritten/taken maintainership over this plugin, i'd 
like to have its point of view about it..
