Yeah, box could use a little bandaid and a hug :)

Playing with Chris' benchmark, seems the biggest problem is that we
don't buddy up waker of many and it's wakees in a node.. ie the wake
wide thing isn't necessarily our friend when there are multiple wakers
of many. If I run an instance per node with one mother of all work in
autobench mode, it works exactly as you'd expect, game over is when
wakees = socket size. It never get's near that point if I let things
wander, it beats itself up well before we get there.
