Please don't top-post.
Yes, the driver used to do this and it was a bug (it presented two
4-core CPUs as if it was a single 8-core CPU), and it was fixed. What
you call "a problem" is actually a bug fix. The fact that poorly written
applications can't cope with the change is unfortunate, but this is a
bug you have to report to their authors, not to us.
