Thanks, Douglas.
I found your code in the archive.

My MPI application is a two-process thing, in which data is thrown
back and forth. For the most part, one process is calculating, and
the other is waiting.

I got tired of seeing both cpus at 100% load, and based on suggestions
from Jeff Squyres and Eugene Loh, wrote MPI_Recv.c and MPI_Send.c. I
load these with my application, and bingo! Only one cpu busy at any
given time.

They use a graduated sleep; the first sleep is short, the second is
twice as long, and so on, up to a maximum sleep time.

I sent the code along with my last message on the subject (December
2008, or later) so it should be in the archives. Failing that, I
could post it again, if anyone wants it.
