Summary:                    "top" in rev 17813 maybe misunderstand "%MEM" usage
Description: 
In man of top, %MEM explains as:

       n: %MEM  --  Memory usage (RES)
          A task's currently used share of available physical memory.

That is, it just calculates "physical" memory not "virtual" memory.

Not a bug. %MEM is just a % of this process' VSZ against total RAM (and it
can even go above 100%).
