INTERPRETATION:  This result is actually nothing to be worried about since it could have resulted from rounding, but they should be changed to 100% since it is not possible to have more than 100% actual coverage.  These logic checks are important to watch though, since it is not effective to present data that is illogical (even if it is minor and only due to rounding).  Keep your eyes open and be sure to check that it is just rounding and then adjust for these small over estimations.
