I know, but I've been running top for about 15 minutes now, and it consistently
shows 0.0%. I can also assume that top has gotten in sync with somehow, but
then again I have more than 1 runnable process on average over the last
15 minutes, so I would suspect that some other process should also get some

And of course I also ran top on other terminals -- could they all be in sync
at the same time or something?
