Failed to hand off onionskin


From time to time I am getting this warning:

Failed to hand off onionskin. Closing.
Your computer is too slow to handle this many circuit creation
requests! Please consider using the MaxAdvertisedBandwidth config
option or choosing a more restricted exit policy.

I have been monitoring the system and while it is true that sometimes
it tops one processor, it occupies most of the time just 50 % of one
processor. I have also configured Tor daemon to use two threads so
even if it tops one it could still switch to another. But it rarely
passes 100 % (that is, it rarely really uses two processors). The
system as a whole has also not topped its CPU power. And while load
does not seem to be so high I get at the same time this errors. Is
there some other system bound which would be causing this and not CPU?
Are there some other performance tweaks I could try?

I am using Tor (r16744) on FreeBSD amd64. Should I maybe
upgrade to devel version?
