Description John Bollinger 2000-05-02 14:55:38 EDT
The CPU time reported for any particular process by 'ps' of procps-2.0.6
rolls over to zero when that process has consumed 24 hours of CPU time.
'top' still reports the correct time consumed, however.  This occured
with no options and with the -C <procname> option; no other option
combinations were tested.  The reported behavior occurred on an Intel
hardware platform, and was not tested on other hardware.

Fixed in Debian last year

-- Fixed in Debian without sending me a patch...  :-P

Fixed in procps-2.0.7, which is in our current RawHide release.
