Are you taking into account the fact that V$ views look at real memory in real time and do not follow the Consistent Read model?

In other words, it is quite possible for some small variations to occur simply because the V$ views (X$ tables, and the associated code) query each memory location in real time, while the system is actually performing operations.

My experience is that the 'drift' in the V$/X$ information is exacerbated in certain environments, such as virtualization. (You do not mention your environment in detail.) I tend to be surprised when the numbers actually 'add up exactly'.
