>Description:
If top is running in one terminal and swapoff/swapon is used to eliminate and re-add the current swap device, top reflects the results of the swapoff but not the swapon.  Stop top and re-run top and all is fine.  Not a high priority problem but could be misleading to someone leaving top open for long periods.
