I've had my Linux box up for weeks.  I was looking at top and noticed
that the VIRT column for fancontrol said "100m".  Now, I know you're
supposed to take VIRT with a grain of salt because it includes all
kinds of things like shared memory, etc.  But isn't 100 megs a bit
excessive?  Isn't this just a shell script?

BTW, RES and SHR are 2944 and 504, respectively.
