I have just loaded FreeBSD 950210-SNAP onto my home computer
(486DX2-80) to do some coding simulations.  Everything works 
great!

However, whenenver I use "ps -ux" to check the status of
a simulation running in the background it returns some
erroneous results:

>USER       PID %CPU %MEM   VSZ  RSS TT  STAT STARTED       TIME COMMAND
>davidk     192 124.6  3.3   224  472 p1  R     4:23AM    0:13.10 sim1_2
>davidk     190  0.0  3.1   552  436 p1  S     4:23AM    0:00.37 -u (tcsh)

why is it that % cpu utilization for process 192 is > 100%.
Is this some "feature" that I am not aware of?  If it is a
bug, what part of the source should I modify to fix it?
(I am not an experienced UNIX system program.  I just write
coding simulations.)
