They're all running today and top is behaving perfectly normally. I did
observe that pressing 'I' changed the output, so that 480% became more like
250%. This seems to be an "Irix mode" toggle and I have no idea why it should
make any difference. Also I see little point in choosing between 2 different
values of wrong, unless it offers any further clues.

No, they were all 'nice 19' processes, BOINC clients and the like, and the
system was coping just fine.
