Are you forgetting to set QoS on the channel? ( http://bit.ly/iiUWyh )

Between starting the first and second client, the first client will have 
an opportunity to get all the messages if they can be processed fast 
enough. Try adding more dots to have the tasks take longer to complete. 
Subsequent work items that are issued once both workers are running and 
that involve comparable effort should be shared evenly between workers.

If this still doesn't work then feel free to share your code.
