Although your code includes a 'stop' signal to break out of the loop, once 
a sieve enters its filtloop, when does it ever receive a signal to stop? 
What happens to the sieve that never receives a prime? 

The result is that any prime sieve (and the very last) will still be 
waiting in a receive state after all the required processing is complete.
