RHEL3: top has screen errors on large smp machines

Description of problem:
On our 32 processor systems (both x86 and ia64), when "top" is used to display
seperate CPU states (by pressing "1"), we sometimes receive a malloc() error:
This problem only occurs when the screen is not large (tall) enough to display
all 32 processors at the same time. I am pretty sure this problem has been
fixed elsewhere, because it used to happen in SLES8 and no longer occurs in
SLES9. I was surprised to see it occur in RHEL4.
We also receive a an error when resizing the screen:
*** glibc detected *** realloc(): invalid next size: 0x600000000000d5
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
We don't support 32 Processors for RHEL3.
