NiMHs taking more charge than their rating?

I bought a new JR 1500 mAh 4 cell NiMH pack and thought I would put it through a charge cycle with my new AC/DC Hyperion charger at 100 mA. I took a look at it and it had put in over 3000 mAh and it was still going! So I did a discharge/charge cycle (@200 mA) with my trusted Triton and it took 1400 mAh out and was over 2800 mAh when I stopped it again. The cut off sensitivity was at 3 mV. And the pack voltage is around 5.9V.
This has me confused, to say the least. Can anybody explain this?
