Comment 1 Alexander Larsson 2003-03-11 08:18:43 EST
Very strange. 
Can you try with 2.0.11-6 from rawhide:
http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS/procps-2.0.11-6.i386.rpm

Note that that version requires a kernel >= 2.4.20-2.50. So you probably have to
upgrade that to.

Comment 3 Jon Burgess 2003-03-11 08:54:40 EST
OK, I updated the kernel and procps packages with no effect:

[root@cele rawhide]# uname -a
Linux cele 2.4.20-2.54 #1 Sat Feb 22 08:27:12 EST 2003 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
[root@cele rawhide]# top -V
procps version 2.0.11
[root@cele rawhide]# rpm -q procps
procps-2.0.11-6

I see. The priority field is negative, and somewhere top is printing it as an
unsigned value.
