I can't reproduce that error my systems. (I'm always logged in as a regular user)
bora:~$ dpkg --list source modules procps

ii source 1.2.13 4 Linux kernel source.
ii modules 1.2.8 1 Linux module utilities.
ii procps 0.97 4 The /proc file system utilities.
Just guessing: maybe top reuses stdin on /proc ? I didn't look into the sources
