[RC5] DES II on Dual Processor

I am running the new client on a dual PPro 200, and it seems to start
two threads correctly, but it always seems to force one thread to work
on RC5, and the other to work on DES.  Is this correct behavior?  I have
set the numcpu setting to 2 in rc5desrv.ini (I am running the NT
service).  The remainder of the file looks like:

id=dysart at tensornet.com
threshold=10:10
threshold2=10:10
count=0
hours=0.000000
timeslice=65536
niceness=0
logname=C:\win32app\rsa\DESCrack.log
firemode=4
keyproxy=us.v27.distributed.net
httpproxy=http-proxy
httpport=85
httpid=
cputype=2
messagelen=0
smtpsrvr=your.smtp.server
smtpport=25
smtpfrom=RC5notify
smtpdest=you at your.site
numcpu=2
checkpointfile=none
checkpointfile2=none
randomprefix=102
preferredcontest=2
preferredblocksize=30

Everything else seems to work fine, and all of my single processor
clients seem to be downloading and working on DES.  Any suggestions?
