     That there is another idle process competing for processor time is not 
     beside the point.  If the RC5 client is set to lowest priority, then 
     it probably can't get a cycle from the FX!32 scanning.

That's true, but it's beside the point here. The nt-alpha-client 
is alpha native code (no x86emul).
