Yes, this is known. It is because Credit2 does not support (hard)
affinity. There is a series on the list by someone implementing that,
but it needs refreshing, which I hope to get round to it soon.

This is also known, and it will be fixed when I'll get back and
resubmit this:


In fact, look at this patch:

And I'll do that right in this days, so I'd say you can ignore this for
RTDS (as it will get fixed by the same series).

So both are known issues... I'll open bugs in our bugtraker for them to
avoid forgetting or tripping over them again.
