Powernowd & Centrino Core Duo

I've installed Ubuntu on a Core Duo based laptop from Dell, and I have a 
question about cpu frequency scaling.

After installing a smp kernel both processors are working fine, but frequency 
scaling is only working with cpu0.  I've found a workarround by setting 
ondemand as the default governor for cpu1, but... shouldn't powernowd be 
actualized to support more than one processor -it's still a laptop and needs 
not to waste power/get too hot-? 8-?

Thanks for your time  ;)

PD I've also compiled 2.6.16 kernel, same behaviour.
