[RC5] Linux MT client

I've just set up the multi-threaded client for the first time. It worked
fine, but my process list looks odd to me:

nobody    1229  0.0  0.5   896   372   6 S N 23:43   0:00 /home/rc5/rc5des
nobody    1230  0.0  0.5   896   372   6 S N 23:43   0:00 /home/rc5/rc5des
nobody    1231 99.2  0.5   896   372   6 R N 23:43 878:51 

Why 3 processes? Isn't it supposed to be multi-threaded, not
multi-process? Did I make some odd mistake in my init script that causes
this to be run three times? That is a possibility I will allow, since I
set it up as an /etc/rc.d/init.d/rc5 script. Who knows what mistakes I
might have made :)

Anyway, is this expected behavior?
