For me it seems to be ok... I see that the load is shared across both cpu's.
sometimes one cpu is at 100%, but most of the time I see a shared load of
50-70% on both cpu's.
I did not see other tasks consuming cpu. but I see mythfrontend always taking
Other taskes come up for a short time with less than 5%. but this should be
normal and "X" should have some cpu time I guess :-)
