Thanks, Craig.

I’m guessing that it might have been some time since you issued a 'W' to update 
the rcfile.

For the problem I mentioned to arise 'W' would have to be issued under the 
original graphs implementation, updating the '.lt-toprc' config file.  Then, 
after updating your repository with the latest commits and rebuilding, another 
'W' issued.

Incidentally, not all distros use the 'lt-top' naming convention.  Builds 
within a git repository under OpenSUSE, for example, employ the normal 'top’ 
program name.

Anyway, I sure hope you don’t run with the top defaults.  How would you feel 
about changing those defaults, since it would mostly affect new users?  I think 
turning on colors, forest view and cpus graph mode would help to open some eyes.
