in thread forkManager PID 1 less than top

Where did you see random PIDs ? I think all (most?) Linux distros use sequental. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Process_identifier#Unix-like

Process IDs are usually allocated on a sequential basis

Also:

I am running Ubuntu with 3.8 kernal, PIDs are sequental.
Also, I think there can be problems with some software, when recently-used PID re-used too fast.

        Wow, you're absolutely right, Windows can't do anything right! Thanks for opening my eyes!

        Seriously now, I know it makes Linux look bad, but that doesn't mean you should lash out.
