IMO, these 6-stubs are still too big. Less than half of the PCs here 
doing OGR have yet to return a work unit today, and it's 1335. One of 
the PCs just returned a 420 Gnode work unit - it's got the fastest 
processors in the building, and still took 28 hours to complete. 
Several other 200+GN units have also come in today.
