So rowid X on AMP N may come back before rowid Y on AMP M the first time, but then when AMP N is busy doing other stuff, rowid Y will come in before the other one, 'cause AMP M isn't doing as much as the other AMP? Right?  

Hmmm, don't know, how it's actually implemented...

Maybe just wait until the system is really busy and then:

     .SESSION 10
     .REPEAT 1000
     insert into xxx select top 5001 * from large_table;
     select distinct * from xxx;

At least in the "Single AMP optimization" case it's probably always the same.

Unless it's utilizing "Sync Scan" :-(
