problem with cpu usage (user)

Greetings, all.  I'm having a problem with monit 4.8.2 on gentoo 1.4.16
(Linux kernel 2.6.10-gentoo-r6).  According to top all CPUs are mostly
idle, but monit thinks the cpu user usage is hovering over 70%.  Having
mpstat average CPU usage over the same cycle length as monit (2
minutes) results in the same values as top.  I've read Martin Pala's
description of how monit calculates those figures[1] but it's still not
clear to me why they're so different; surely they can't both be right.
Any help would be appreciated.

Please find attached /etc/monitrc, /proc/stat, /proc/cpuinfo, and the
output of monit -vI, top -b -n 1, and mpstat -P ALL 120 3.

Many thanks,
