BOINC is only using one cpu of my dual AMD, even though my preferences say to use 4 instances... this used to work a week ago, but not now. What to do?

BNC needs two workunits to benefit on dual processor machines. It's not capable of crunching the same WU simultaneously on two prozessors.

So a possible explanation would be, that there were not enough (in this case only one) workunit left for calculation.
