Subjectfree output still a bit fsck'ed...
Hi,

I've noticed this a few times before -- the +/- buffers info
given by free goes negative sometimes.

This from 2.1.63 while compiling kernels over NFS from localhost:

pc29:~$ free
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 62980 54244 8736 11860 4140
-/+ buffers: 50104 4596

pc29:~$ free

pc29:~$ free
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 62980 58424 4556 14060 4204
-/+ buffers: 54220 352
Swap: 68508 4 68504 41068

Are these number supposed to be approximate, or is there a
bug/race/whatever somewhere?

Matthew.
