different project priority setting but sharing buffers might be a novel way
of achieving that (btw. this might be a good answer for the FAQ entry at

Under the performance menu of the configuration there is an option to
specify the number of crunchers to run simultaneously - set this to 2 I
suspect and see if it makes any difference...
