Some of these stats are at the very least questionable, but the 0k*sec
is quite clearly broken.

sa -m with accounting on.

None known yet -- I was going to look into this later next month, but
wanted to remind myself about this, as well as get it in the pr
database in case someone else wants to look at it.  It's not high on
my personal list  ;)

Mike is now a developer, so he can work out what to do 
with his PR. 

I'll point out the following comment in the BUGS section: 
NetBSD's VM system does not record the CPU storage integral. 

That probably explains the observed behaviour
