ambigious 'top' results

are you using 7-branch?

in my 7.1 system there is same problem. top shows often nonsense in CPU 
usage of a process, but totals are OK.

you even gave an example - bzip2 can't use 0% CPU running - more close to 
100% :)

as long as everything goes fine 100% CPU load is OK. if it's mostly mysql 
then optimize your database, if you can't change hardware
