That slowdown is expected. It slows down because with 1 worker it
has to transfer the results from the worker to the backend.
The backend just waits for the results from the workers and merges them
(in case wnum > 0). So the 1-worker configuration should never be used,
because it is as sequential as the 0-worker, but adds data transfer.
