I tested it on my 8 thread i7 with no such problem at all. In fact I haven't seen anything like what you describe happen with any plugin at all. Maybe something else is at play here?

Edit: And I still don't know if you mean a cpu with 2 or 4 threads, as I believe there are processors with 2 cores and hyperthreading..?
