Hie Joen (and others):

Could someone tell me why a machine with multiple processors (2 or
more) would run IB more slowly?

I always thought that multi-processor(MP) support was only a concern
of the task manager/switcher within the O/S kernel. If the computer
is running more then 1 thread then it should be able to run half the
threads on each CPU. You do lose the time the task mananger is
operating, but that would mean 2 200MHz processors add up to around
375MHz rather then 400.
