[Haskell-cafe] on the number of ghc_worker threads on executables

Dear list

I noticed that on -threaded programs, even with just 1 capability (+RTS
-N1) the number of worker tasks is usually more than 3. Examples of this
are glirc and taffybar. What factors determine the number of
Tasks/worker Tasks (OS threads) on a program?
