Bug Description

Whatever command line I provide for the /usr/bin/time it always report zeros for values that correspond to memory consumption. Say, I run:

/usr/bin/time -f "%M %D %K" mcedit x.c

where x.c is a large file. Then I try some actions in the editor and quit. The numbers the tool prints are always

0 0 0

This is under Ubuntu 8.04.2 / bash.
