Thanks costamagnagianfranco for the infos!

I was irritated about that... cause for _me_ (straight logic!?!) for
example *tested* so (AMD 4-core):

max. # CPUs: 3
use 99 %
--> cpu load overall: 74,25 % (that was my year long approved setting and work so very good!)

max. # CPUs: 2
use 50 %
--> cpu load overall: 50 % (not as i expected!), should be 25%

3. tested
max. # CPUs: 4
use 10 %
--> cpu load overall: 10 % (as expected)

4. tested
max. # CPUs: 2
use 100 %
--> cpu load overall: 50 % (decide yourself, what you expected)

I see here some possibilities to make things clear:
A.) Change the description on the project sites, and please add some more information cause it is vital for the machine.

B.) Delete the option "On multiprocessors, at most use:
processors" in "Advanced Options" on the websites and just work with the
percent number.

C.) Leave all the applications as they are and fix the bug.

Or did i miss here something or missunderstood sekerob testings...?
