Erratum in https://docs.python.org/2.6/library/multiprocessing.html:

The chunksize argument is the same as the one used by the map() method. For very long iterables using a large value for chunksize can make >>>make<<< the job complete much faster than using the default value of 1.

The documentation for 2.6 is no longer maintained (and neither is 2.6 itself, so we highly recommend upgrading to at least 2.7 if at all possible), and this has already been fixed in 2.7.

Thanks for the report anyway!
