The current limit of "number of cores" is too small. As soon as a task is finished it is replaces by a task from another project as there are no tasks waiting. If you are trying to minimize the number of tasks on a computer at any given time I would say "number of cores + 2" would suffice as this would keep two tasks waiting to jump in as soon as another task finishes...and keep the other projects from jumping in instead.
