Bug#1853: top fails after 130 processes?

Package: procps
Version: 0.97-4


I was running top on my system tonight and it showed the stats of 124
processes etc etc.  Then on the next "view" 5 seconds later it spits out:

top: Help!  Too many processes

Then it exits, and wont let me run it until it's below 130ish - is this what
it's meant to do?  Otherwise killing processes that run away when using over
120 odd processes would be murder going through a normal ps list.
