Hi all,

I have a problem using top. When I start it while having the LANG variable 
set (I use "de_DE") it gives "bad data in /proc/uptime" and "bad data in 
/proc/loadavg" and exits. To make things worse, it messes up my console so 
I have to do a reset to work properly. Does anyone know if this could be 
avoided? Otherwise it would be time for me to send a bug report.
