That 50% CPU usage will be one of your cores running flat out while 
the other one is idling:)

Hmm...  [looks at watch and wonders if it's time to post another 
missive about the _need_ for a redesign of FG to run on MPP systems 
as it gets ever clearer that significant increases in computing 
power have more or less stalled in terms of height (cpu speed) and 
in future, will come instead from width (parallel processing) - 
FG's current design is effectively obsolete]
