I have reworked that to make the monitor data queue up with a given limit, 
similar to the Syslog panel.  See Isabelle/4bfcc09a33e8.

It means the monitor may stay open indefinitely.  Remaining waste of 
resources is mainly due to GUI repainting, which is not as light as it 
could be, but that is due to the underlying JFreeChart library.
