dual core= glitches, cpus=1 fix?

My system runs (relatively) fine using both cores of my AMD X2 processer. Both cores show up and display activity in Activity Monitor. However, I've realized some problems.


Many graphics-intensive apps freeze. For example, Quartz visualizers in iTunes, and the Sims 3.


I've found that booting with cpus=1 completely fixes this problem, at the cost of drastically slower performance.


Has anybody else experienced this? And is there a different way to go about fixing it, so I can use both cores?


I am using the Qoopz/Nawcom 10.4.0 kernel on 10.6.4.
