Yup. What seems to have happened is that waking up 1800 processes at once has
caused the box to thrash so hard it is taking ages for any one process to get
enough scheduler time to clean itself up and exit.

I guess we may need a thrash preventer that slows things down enough for each
process to get a healthy bite of the cherry.
