I went back and forth on this. Old top would only count system
processes in the summary line if they were also being displayed below
(i.e.: using the 'S' command or the -S switch). Yet other restrictions
on the main display were not reflected in the count. For example if you
restrict the view to a particular command or user the count would still
include all user processes. This seemed inconsistent to me and in the
end I decided to count all processes regardless of what was being
displayed. In version 3.8 the process count is (almost) the same as "ps
ax | wc -l".
I will make sure the documentation reflects this.
