[RC5] is this right?

Lots of memory on the box, and my additive keystroke rate is faster with 
two instances running than with one. ALways has been incidentally. Even 
when I ran rc5-64 and linux on an AMD-533.
Since any xNIX is multitasking ready as opposed to a winbox, I'll venture a 
guess why...when one client is fetching or flushing, the cpu power on the 
other client is maximized. (Course I'm not a CPU architect, but that's my 
humble guess)
