Awesome - no more warnings! Unfortunately though, the processes that run inside it doesn't seem to get more than 2% CPU.

As expected, this works just fine on Linux.

Basically I run this web app that requires ImageMagick to process photos, but whenever ImageMagick runs, it consumes up to 100% CPU, rendering the actual web app inaccessible (gateway timeout).
