This is not happening to us.  But I did notice this.

Running with GCGMaxProcessors set to 1, I get ave cpu usage > 100%  
with fasta from the GCG10 command line and W2H.  Also, FATSA seems  
to default to GCGMaxProcessors even if you set -proc=n on the  
command line.  Strange.

When I run GCG blast and set GCGMaxProcessors to 1 I get cpu  
averages < 100% and the -proc=n flag seems to work correctly.

The fasta thing happens outside of GCG with fasta3.X -T 1 giving me  
cpu averages > 100%.

Don't know if it's DEC related or FASTA related.
