On my Copmuter the percent of CPU used by the game is constantly between 44% and 50% when wiggle is running. Plus a little spike of 1% more from time to time - eihter measurement inaccuracys or something like score update to the servers.

So does the game use only 2 cores for the tools? Especially wiggle could go much faster and that one produces a lot of waiting time.

I'm running an AMD 905e 2,5GHz @2,75GHz

Yes, it does use 2 cores, plus a small bit.
This would require dividing the game into more threads (processes).

Can you run two instances of foldit, folding several puzzles with each instance?

FoldIT atm using only one thread (core) for computing and second for GUI. If you have quad, run one client, start script and minimize it you will have "only" 25% usage. When not minimized: 50%. In dual cores that would be 50 in minimized and 100 when not.
