[ubuntu-uk] Question about System Monitor

Ubuntu 9.04 in a WUBI install on a Toshiba L40 Satellite with 2GB RAM
and duo core T2330 1.6GHz processors.

If I launch System Monitor, the CPU %age on the Processes tab (viewing
All Processes) is nothing LIKE as high as the CPU %age shown on the
Resources tab.

The Resources tab shows both CPUs constantly round the 50% mark - even
when the Processes tab only shows about 10% of CPU being used.
Why is this, or is there something basic I have missed?
