a screenshot of top showing the problem
The screendump clearly shows that the swap line is 1 character too long, thus
making top scroll the first line off the screen.
This is with 80 columns?
Yes, indeed, this is with the default xterm width (and console width) of 80 columns.
Could you check this with 3.1.15?
