Data Swap space used greater than allocated using top

Hi there,

When I run top on my machine it says I have 497M swap space in use, and 380M swap space free,

but I have only allocated 512M swap space to the machine!!!!

Does anyone know how swap used is calculated in the top command?

I've always seen problems with it showing cpu as over 100% (adding user, kernel, idle) on solaris.
