Sometimes when I'm trying to diagnose what process is hogging all of my laptop's resources, I notice that
htop will sort the CPU% column incorrectly.
The “CPU%” column is highlighted in the header row, so that means its sorting by that column (right?), yet it’s all out of order. It’s clearly not sorting it numerically, and neither is it sorting it lexicographically. I'm not sure how else it could be trying to sort it.
- Laptop: MacBook Pro (17-inch, Late 2011)
- OS: El Capitan v10.11.6 (15G31)
- Htop Version: htop 2.1.0
Here's the content of my

I wasn't able to find much on it after consulting with the Google Gods. Is this a known bug? Or is it perhaps a PEBKAC error? (I hope not, that would be embarrassing).
