I have the same feeling. I usually run MiNT without MP because of this. For 
example I'm not able to run Cab under Multitos (with MP) without a crash of 
the system and technical information about PC, BSS and so on not useful for 
me. So I run Multitos without MP but it seems to act as if it was working 
in the reverse way as it should. (AFAICTell ;-) )

I'm not a "specialist".
