[galib] Generation / Population Overflow

I might be missing the point somewhere, but it seems that quite 
regularly if I specify X generations / population, the actual number of 
generations / population is larger. GADemeGA, for example, was set to 
use a generation of 50, yet is currently on 120 and still counting!

GASteadyStateGA, by constrast, will always do the specifed number of 
generations but the population can creep up from 100 to 120 or more 
after a few generations.

Is there any way to artificially cap this crawling, and is there a good 
reason for it?
