Netbeans is a memory hog?

I was looking at Activity Monitor on my iMac, and I couldn't read the size entry for the Netbeans process that was running. So, I selected it and got a detail report:

I knew that Java and Netbeans could be memory hogs, but 16 million TB (16 exabytes) is a bit much. Good thing I have virtual memory! (I didn't alter the image, but clearly it's a bug with Activity Monitor and/or OS X 10.5.2.)
